Young Jean Lee’s The Shipment in HD at BAM

BAM’s Performance in HD program brings opera, dance, and theater from around the world to the screen.  But next week, BAM will show the first of two works this fall by emerging, provocative artists.  Young Jean Lee’s The Shipment will be screened in HD on October 17th. Called “a subversive, seriously funny new theater piece” in The New York Times (it premiered two years ago in New York), The Shipment is a “black identity politics show” that dares audiences to question their own preconceived notions about race and culture.  It’s sharp, smart, and witty – and definitely worth seeing if you missed it in 2009 (or, if you did see it, come watch it again!).  Tickets are now on sale.  And mark your calendar for December 5th, when choreographer Diana Szeinblum’s Alaska will screen in HD.  Both The Shipment and Alaska in HD were filmed by On the Boards as part of OntheBoards.tv.
