Mia Rovegno’s nothin’s gonna change my world was developed in part in the inaugural year of New Georges’ Audrey Residency program; and workshopped beautifully in our 2014 New Georges Jam on Toast festival. At last! Coming to fruition, with a major cast and incredible music in a gorgeous location — this summer’s unmissable event! Get on the ferry and come on down, two weekends only!
Arrive by water taxi or jump on the local bus. Meet us on a cobblestoned Brooklyn street corner and wander into a backyard in Kansas. Take a left and reach the edge of Lake Michigan as you step inside a floating home. Grab a snack in Texas before gathering round a campfire in Tucson for a concert at the edge of the earth. Across the street at Sunnys, drop back into Brooklyn and enjoy a cold one and some local tunes after the show.

nothin’s gonna change my world is an episodic play/performance piece, an immersive meditation on the dislocated and relocated in search of that mythological place called home. Glimpsing stories from across the nation inspired by NPR reports, the anonymous letters of Found Magazine, RV living blogs, the Occupy Movement and more, audiences are invited to a unique local setting conjuring the vastness of our country to reflect on the universal yearning to belong in our current American landscape.
nothin’s gonna change my world is a New Georges Supported Production. New Georges’ Supported Productions program provides advice, mentorship, and resources to New Georges affiliated artists who are producing their work independently.
