Time Out says

A new, live and movement-based performance about "skin hunger" and the need to connect is coming to Madison Square Park (the northern edge of the park at 26th Street). Inspired by the last year, the piece invites its audience to partake in the warmth of creative intimacy, with the safety of distance. The Blessed Unrest ensemble members wrote their personal experiences and award-winning writers (Keith Hamilton Cobb and Teddy Jefferson) edited their essays into a poetic script. Composer and sound designer Adrian Bridges developed music and pre-recorded speech that guides the actors. Presented as part of the NYC Open Culture program, Touch "strives to awaken the audience’s senses as they follow the performers through fractured journeys of forbidden touch set against the beautiful canopy of Madison Square Park." The show will have extremely limited capacity so reservations are highly recommended. Tickets can be purchased by emailing info@blessedunrest.org with the patron’s name, desired show date and time, and number of tickets requested.
