ABSTRACT

Staging Post-feminism in Young Jean Lee’s Untitled Feminist Show Abstract Na,Eunha(SeoulNationalUniv.) This essay examines Young Jean Lee’s 2012 play Untitled Feminist Show within the emerging discourses of post-identity theater. While Lee’s play evokes the legacies of feminist performance art in the 1970s, its political and aesthetic expressions of femaleness and feminism suggest a differing vision of feminist future. Focusing on the theatricality of female bodies in display and the fluidity of their assumed identities throughout Untitled Feminist Show, I suggest that the play’s post-feminist aesthetic is a performative expression of an Asian American female artist’s resistance to the identity-based theater anchored in such notions of gender, ethnicity, and race.
