Feminist mystique Young Jean Lee and her eponymous troupe return to the MCA this week with Untitled Feminist Show. The six women onstage, assembled from New York’s performance art, burlesque and cabaret worlds, explore expectations of femininity in a series of vignettes, all performed minus clothing. Saturday 20 at 1pm, Lee and fellow playwright-provocateur Thomas Bradshaw will participate in a discussion led by James Palmer of Red Tape Theatre, which is mounting Lee’s Lear in May. See for details.
