April 30 –

New Ohio Theatre
154 Christopher St, NYC

  • Conceived and directed by
    Jessica Burr
  • Created by
    The Ensemble
  • With text by
    Matt Opatrny

A trauma surgeon works to repair her patient’s internal organs, a painter seeks to expose the raw humanity of his nude model, 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.
