The Wexner Center For the Arts, Columbus, OH, October 2008

The Shipment takes the audience on an awkward and volatile roller-coaster ride through the absurdities and atrocities that arise whenever people start trying to talk about the black experience in America. For this work, playwright and director Young Jean Lee, a Korean American, challenged herself to create a “Black identity-politics show." Ludicrous, honest, and devoid of truisms, The Shipment dares to ask embarrassing questions and seek solutions to impossible problems. Driscoll choreographed a dance of raw physicality and expression loosely referencing minstrel show antics as the opening number
