NEW NOISEAbout the Group:
NEW NOISE is a theater ensemble from New Orleans, LA. We create visually-intense, physically-demanding original work through collaborative processes and long-term partnerships with writers, designers and performers. NEW NOISE works to advance ensemble practice through quarterly community workshops with master artists and through the presentation and development of works-in-progress by local ensembles.

Current Projects:

  • “Runnin’ Down the Mountain” uses live music, amplified voices and sound looping along with physical performance and dramatic action to share the story of a brother and sister, grown and living alone on their family’s mountainside farm in the Great Smokies.  The performance examines what it means to be “raised to leave” in the American South.
  • “Pchile Goyin (a letting go)” is the story of a woman swallowed by a lake. Through intricate masks, live music, large-scale puppetry and intensely physical performance, NEW NOISE and Mondo Bizarro take audiences on a spectacle-sized journey through this folk tale of transformation.
