A trauma surgeon works to repair her patient’s internal organs, a painter seeks to expose the raw humanity of his nude model, and two sisters attempt to cross the gaps of time and the mystery of their separation. Meanwhile, a woman journeys back to Chernobyl with a special delivery. Body is a devised physical theatre piece digging into the flesh, organs, bones, systems, and movement of the human body as art and as machine.
Warning: Some bodies appear in their natural state.
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 next spring.
Conceived and directed by
Nanda Abella, Natalia Ivana Escobar, Catherine Gowl*, Tatyana Kot, Poppy Liu, Jessica Ranville, Sonia Villani, Nathan Richard Wagner, Joshua Wynter*, and Aaron Michael Zook*
This production is an Equity-approved showcase. *Member AEA.

"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."
