Event

The Shipment
THE SHIPMENT
by Young Jean Lee
directed by Psalmayene 24
REGIONAL PREMIERE

May 21-June 13, 2015

Staged through a series of theatrical vignettes, The Shipment is in an irreverent look at African-American identity, challenging stereotypes in a not yet post-racial society. Using a veil of humor including politically-charged standup, sketch, short drama, music, and movement, director Young Jean Lee confronts that which makes her most uncomfortable and shines a subversive, engaging light on the racial filter through which we perceive the world.

"[The Shipment explores] just how much skin color continues to frame the way we see each othereven in a post-race, Barack Obama-electing America. It's an early example of what will hopefully be an avalanche of smart, fearless work that brings the same fresh feel to the artistic conversation about race that is said to imbue today's politics."
Kai Wright, The Root

The Shipment premiered at the Wexner Center for the Arts in 2008. The Brooklyn-based filmmaker, director, and playwright Young Jean Lee is dedicated to producing experimental, multi-cultural works that ask the audience to confront their discomfort. This is a return to Lee's work after Forum's 2012's production of Church.
