Newyorkland (NY Premiere)

“Theater-artist Kenneth Collins and filmmaker William Cusick—just keep elevating their game.” – Time Out New York

“Seamless and gorgeous… a dreamy, poetic, abstracted and sometimes scary meditation.”
– The Stranger

“Newyorkland is a fascinating window into a cop’s often isolating experiences.”
– The Seattle Times

“A compelling, self-contained world from which it’s impossible to avert one’s eyes… an original and important evening of theater.”
– Crosscut

” hypnotic and sumptuous theatrical presentation… wonderful palliative for those who need a break from the tyranny of straightforward narrative storytelling.”
– Seattlest

“Mind-blowing video images and theatrical tension.”
– The New York Times

An intertextual assemblage, Newyorkland combines popular cop movies and TV police procedurals with first-person accounts from real-life police officers. Acclaimed director Kenneth Collins and prominent video artist William Cusick merge visual and performance art, documentary realism, cinéma vérité, and pure fiction as they follow four police officers struggling with the high costs of working within the demanding, dangerous, and secretive society of the NYPD.
