Setting ’23 in motion with The Untitled Othello Project

Blessed Unrest Artistic Director and Sacred Heart University Artist-in-Residence Jessica Burr will be leading the upcoming week of work at SHU. The focus will be on the women of Othello, the dead as well as the living, the invisible as well as the visible. We’ll investigate their varied experiences of power and sexuality, their early palpable silences, how they find their voices, and the inexorable consequences of their actions. 
The Untitled Othello Project will be livestreamed Monday-Friday, January 9-13, from 11AM-6PM, with a break from 2-3PM. Just click the video link below to tune in. We’d love to have you!
An article published by the university about the project is available here.
