Ars Nova operates on the unceded land of the Lenape peoples on the island of Manhahtaan (Mannahatta) in Lenapehoking, the Lenape Homeland.
We acknowledge the brutal history of this stolen land and the displacement and dispossession of its Indigenous people. We also acknowledge that after there were stolen lands, there were stolen people. We honor the generations of displaced and enslaved people that built, and continue to build, the country that we occupy.
We are also gathered together in a virtual space. We encourage you to consider the legacies of colonization embedded within the technology and structures we use and to acknowledge its disproportionate impact on communities of color and Indigenous peoples worldwide.
We invite you to join us in acknowledging all of this as well as our shared responsibility; to consider our way forward in reconciliation, decolonization, anti-racism and allyship. We commit ourselves to the daily practice of pursuing this work.
Through year-round discovery and development programming, our stage bustles with comedy, music and theater artists testing out new ideas in front of adventurous audiences.
Catch our Off-Broadway world premiere productions at our historic venue downtown, located in the heart of Greenwich Village.
Our new digital platform, Ars Nova Supra, is home to all of our discovery and development offerings! Tune in for premieres created specifically for streaming, available live and on-demand with a $15/month, cancel-anytime subscription.
