The Nuevists were dissident-performers in New Crobuzon, known for pushing the limits of acceptability with their plays. They sprang up sometime prior to 1804.

Events of Iron Council[]

During the events of Iron Council, the Nuevists put on a play reenacting the events of Jack Half-a-Prayer's death with a seditionist spin. Even after that particular play is broken up by the New Crobuzon Militia and members of the New Quill, the Nuevists continue to perform around Howl Barrow.

When the Caucus rebels against the government, the Nuevists take up arms and aid the uprising in concert with the other denizens of Howl Barrow. Most if not all of their members are killed when the Militia overrun the district.
