Blessed

World Premiere
Music by Courtney Bryan

“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.”—Matthew 5:5

Courtney Bryan’s 'Blessed' is a multi-layered exploration of darkness and light, hope and love, weaving together musical recordings and film footage from New Orleans, New York, and Philadelphia. Created as a response to the milestone events of 2020—the uprising in response to police brutality against Black men and women, the November election—Blessed reflects upon the Christian Bible’s avowal that the meek will one day “inherit the earth.”
