“… one of the more moving and imaginative works I have ever seen on the American stage…” —The New Yorker

“Who said the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak? Both are pretty damn fierce in director Young Jean Lee’s all-female, all-nude dance suite…” —Time Out New York

UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW is the latest experiment by Obie award-winning playwright and director Young Jean Lee, who has been called “the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation” by The New York Times and “one of the best experimental playwrights in America” by Time Out New York. In UNTITLED FEMINIST SHOW, six charismatic stars of New York City’s downtown theater, dance, cabaret, and burlesque worlds come together to create an exhilarating—and irreverent—celebration of a fluid and limitless sense of identity.

A blend of comic vignettes, contemporary dance sequences, and evocative video images, what inhabits the stage are a series of ideas echoed in the characteristics of the performers who are liberated from the constraints of pre-defined roles and are meant to resist categorization. With the absence of words (and clothes), the performance twists and turns in hilarious ways that both reveal and challenge the viewers’ assumptions about gender politics.
