About

New Neighborhood

Founded in 2005, New Neighborhood has commissioned, developed, and produced new TV, theater, music, film, and dance work by Will Arbery, Monica Bill Barnes & Company, Sheila Callaghan, Nathan Alan Davis, Marcus Gardley, Frank Harts, Suzanne Heathcote, Honus Honus, Rolin Jones, Lucas Papaelias aka LPfunK, The Petersons, and Aaron Posner, among others, with partners in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., and in some idyllic New England resort towns. In June 2019, in a reclaimed sushi factory in Long Island City, Queens, New Neighborhood produced Filibustered and Unfiltered, the first 24-hour reading of the entire [redacted] Mueller Report, which inspired more than a dozen similar events in communities across the country. Featured everywhere from the Los Angeles Times (“a live-theater summer sensation!”) to Breitbart News (“the single most boring and pointless way to waste your time!”), the tidal wave of readings reached its apex when it was name-checked during Robert Mueller’s nationally televised public testimony. In the 1960s, these kinds of things might have been called “happenings.” Today, New Neighborhood calls them LIVE ACTIONS, socially interactive theatrical installations that change and grow as audience members contribute their own unique voices and diverse perspectives to the conversation.
