    The Civilians presents the culmination of a long-term investigation of the controversial Atlantic Yards development project in Brooklyn and its effect on neighborhood and community.

    This lively presentation of theatre, dance and music draws inspiration from interviews with the real life players in the story of a divided borough: residents both old and new, community activists, developers and politicos. The Civilians will present this dramatic story using actual words from the interviews, showing many sides of this multifaceted issue and the process behind one of the largest urban developments in the country. Far from an indictment of the project, Atlantic Yards examines how the conflicts erupted, where the process went wrong, what is at the heart of urban communities, and what can be learned from the debates of the last seven years.
