Off Broadway docu-theater troupe the Civilians will begin work this fall on “Brooklyn at Eye Level,” a new show about the gentrification of the New York City borough.

Piece will focus on the Atlantic Yards development and its effect on surrounding neighborhoods.

In late October a team of creatives, topped by Civilians a.d. Steven Cosson, will begin gathering material for the show by interviewing local residents, business owners, politicians and others. In addition, development labs will be held with scribe Lucy Thurber (“Scarcity”), Brooklyn dance troupe Urban Bush Women and composer Michael Friedman.
