Celebrating our 15th Season of creating dynamic, disciplined, and exuberant physical theatre in NYC and abroad with our diverse ensemble of artists.
Body: An Anatomy of Being
April 28 – May 22
New Ohio Theatre
154 Christopher St, NYC
A trauma surgeon works to repair her patient’s internal organs, a painter seeks to expose the raw humanity of his nude model, two sisters attempt to cross the gaps of time and the mystery of their separation, and a woman journeys back to Chernobyl as she strives to understand the body that is now only partially hers. Body digs into the flesh, organs, bones, systems, and movement of the human body as art and as machine.
The New Ohio and IRT theatres have commissioned Blessed Unrest to create this original piece during a two-year Archive Residency, which will culminate in a month-long run at the New Ohio opening in April 2016.
"At its best, independent theater is inventive, emotional, inspiring and has the ability to transform the atmosphere in a room full of people. In the several years I have been attending shows by Blessed Unrest, they have never ceased to amaze."
