Temporary Distortion (NY)
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

“[A] hypnotic and sumptuous theatrical presentation… [A] 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 [on Americana Kamikaze]

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.


Newyorkland is commissioned with support from Performance Space 122 and the Jerome Foundation. Newyorkland is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Additional support provided by the Arts Collaboration Lab, a partnership between Columbia University School of the Arts and Performance Space 122 in July 2011, and The Greenwall Foundation.
