“Untitled Feminist Show”
Reading the description of Young Jean Lee’s evocative and risky “Untitled Feminist Show” can be as confusing as experiencing it. Chicago audiences were given the opportunity to witness this nearly dialogue-free, expectation-evading piece, in which six fully nude “female-coded” performers creep, dash and thrash across the MCA stage (and at one point, into the audience). The message of the piece may be difficult to pin down, but the brave (and fully invested) cast sells it impeccably.
