For Untitled Feminist Show, adventurous playwright/director Young Jean Lee put together a group of the most charismatic performers she could find (a cabaret star, a burlesque star, three dance-world stars, and a downtown theater star) to engage the audience in a celebration of human transformation and fluidity. Rather than making a political critique of sexist gender categories, Untitled Feminist Show invites us into an alternate reality in which such categories don’t exist. Using a collage of music, dance, nude, and nearly-wordless performance, the performers take the audience on an exhilarating and disorienting journey through an array of unexpected possibilities, inspiring us to forget about what we think we are and imagine what we could be.

Performance Space 122 and Baryshnikov Arts Center are pleased to present the New York premiere, as part of COIL, PS122’s annual performance festival. 13 performances of Untitled Feminist Show will take place January 12–28 at the Baryshnikov Arts Center’s Jerome Robbins Theater.
