A Simple Space
The seven audacious acrobats of Gravity & Other Myths like to keep things simple. Who needs circus rigging, sparkly costumes or even shoes when you’ve got each other? Balancing, climbing and swinging on one another’s heads, hands and shoulders, this talented troupe saturate their stripped-down spectacle with high-energy athleticism.
Grades 4 – 12
Ajijaak on Turtle Island
Visionary puppetry artist Heather Henson and Grammy Award winner Ty Defoe bring together an ensemble of North American First Nations Peoples to tell the tale of Ajijaak, a young whooping crane who must face her first migration south. Indigenous songs, languages, and dance weave together in this fable about the dangerous effects of climate change on animals and our Mother Earth.

The Nature of Forgetting
When the past begins to dissolve for Tom, a father experiencing early onset dementia, happy childhood moments collide with momentous adult milestones in tangled threads of memory. Through intricate choreography and a cinematic live musical score, London-based Theatre Re creates a compellingly powerful narrative of heartwarming humanity.

The World Inside Me
Wobbly first steps, ouchie boo-boos, funny faces and lilting lullabies. THE WORLD INSIDE ME uses gentle interactive play, live music, dance and visual effects to illustrate the inner life of our growing bodies.
Grades Pre-K – K
Poof! Presto! Snap! Playing with space, time and the otherworldly, this eclectic ensemble of illusionists will boggle your mind. Mixing dexterous sleight of hand, Chaplin-esque vaudevillian comedy and ingenious visual effects, SNAP conjures a marvelous, magical cabaret.
Grades K – 6
Silent Voices: Lovestate
Soaring melodies, interlacing harmonies, and the ethereal voices of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus will echo through The New Victory with SILENT VOICES: LOVESTATE. Driven by their own personal stories and struggles, these remarkable young singers harness the power of their voices to confront the challenges of racism and sexism, as well as their own identities, orientations, boundaries and belonging.
Grades 9 – 12
Around the World in 80 Days
With a fortune at stake, Phileas Fogg and his silly sidekick, Passepartout, must abandon the streets of Victorian London and circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. Adapted by Laura Eason from Jules Verne’s classic novel, this fast-paced, globe-trotting theatrical romp is jam-packed with slapstick hilarity and comic book-style action scenes.
Grades 4 – 12
Bout À Bout
In the whimsical world of BOUT À BOUT (“end to end”), an ordinary piece of rope transforms into a lovable little hero. Along the way, this intrepid bit of twine encounters curious aquatic creatures, a cranky motorist and some springy, stringy playmates, all brought to life through the wondrous puppetry of Le Clan des Songes.
Grades Pre-K – K
Inclement Weather Policy
We must cancel a performance for ALL Education Partners if the New York City DOE decides to cancel school and/or cancel field trips due to inclement weather. If school is in session and public transportation is running, scheduled classroom workshops WILL take place. The Chancellor’s decision to close school or cancel field trips will be communicated to radio and television stations prior to 6am.
In the event of cancellation, updated information will be provided on the New Victory Hotline by 7am each day: 646.223.3090
We will work to reschedule your trip if the performance is cancelled, but may not have the seating capacity to do so. Classroom workshops can also be rescheduled, with the exception of correlating post-show workshops for groups no longer attending a show.
