The Snow Queen in New Victory LabWorks

2017  - New Victory LabWorks, Baruch Performing Arts Center  New York, NY

Blessed Unrest adapts The Snow Queen, using physical theater to build peculiar lands and wild creatures encountered by the courageous heroine as she journeys to rescue her friend.

New Victory LabWorks

Blessed Unrest joined the New Victory LabWorks program to develop our adaptation of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. As part of New Victory LabWorks we were given rehearsal space in the beautiful New 42nd Street Studios, a stipend for development expenses, professional development opportunities with New Victory visiting companies from around the world, and access to the feedback and support of the New Victory Artistic Programming staff.

The New Victory Theater, one of the nation’s leading presenters of theatre for family audiences, established New Victory LabWorks to lead to a body of work that will expand and enrich the quality of performing arts made in the USA for kids and their families. We’re proud to have been welcomed into this incredible program, bringing our physical theatre aesthetic to the peculiar lands and wild creatures encountered by the courageous heroine at the heart of The Snow Queen.


TDF Performeteria

Blessed Unrest is honored to have performed in the first-ever Theatre Development Fund (TDF) PERFORMETERIA, an immersive theatre festival featuring works by “the most innovative Off-Off Broadway theatre and dance companies in New York City.” Audience members traveled through multiple levels of theatres, nooks, and hidden venues within Baruch Performing Arts Center (BPAC) discovering unique, site-specific works from Off-Off Broadway’s best and boldest.
