Brooklyn is CHANGING (and fast!)
From Atlantic Yards to high-rise condos, the future of central Brooklyn is under construction right now. Take a look-at eye level-at the people and places that make this place what it is and what it will be.
This lively performance of THEATER, DANCE, and MUSIC takes its inspiration from interviews with the real life players in the story of Brooklyn: residents both old and new, community activists, developers, politicos and others.
Brooklyn at Eye Level is created from material gathered during a community investigation currently underway that focuses on the controversial Atlantic Yards development project. A team of professional actors are conducting interviews with residents, business owners, politicians and civic organizations and collecting information everywhere, from public events to beauty salons, developing insights into how buildings, services, public space and economic issues shape the ecology of the neighborhood around us. Also providing inspiration for the piece are a series of Community/Artist Labs connecting playwrights Lucy Thurber and Carl Hancock Rux to local groups of community youth.
