Blessed Unrest, New York City’s award-winning subversive physical theater ensemble for an adventurous audience, presents La Musica Deuxième, written by revolutionary, communist, and feminist Marguerite Duras. Artistic Director Jessica Burr directs a cast of two, including Taylor Valentine and Matilda Wood.

La Musica Deuxième tells the story of lovers who unexpectedly reunite after separation. Their charged dialogue reveals the passions, betrayals and savagery of their previous relationship. Twenty years after La Musica, Duras wrote “Act 2”. Duras says: "For almost all that time I have wanted this second Act. For twenty years I have been hearing choked voices, ravaged by the weariness of the sleepless night. May He and She persevere for ever in this youth of first love."

"Duras was a revolutionary and La Musica Deuxième is a reckoning," said Director Jessica Burr. "It speaks to the dilemmas of being flesh-bound...of what it means to be owned by desire, repulsion, longing. It speaks of abandon, both the noun and the verb. It speaks of love, and of the clinging, grasping seizures of jealousy. It is exquisitely crafted, and it is human."

Performances are Thursdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m.; Plus, Monday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. There is no performance on Friday, May 3.

The runtime is approximately 75 minutes, no intermission.

Costume Designer: Sera Bourgeau, Lighting Designer: Jay Ryan, Sound Designer: Laura Galindo, Stage Manager: Rachel Blackwelder. For Blessed Unrest, Business Manager: Jenn Allen, Producing Director: Danica Jensen.
