Christopher-Rashee Stevenson, Malcolm B. Hines, & Jonathan Schenk of “{Flying} Dutchman”

The Tank presents {FLYING} DUTCHMAN, by Theatre of War, text by Amiri Baraka, additional text from Jean Genet, directed by Christopher-Rashee StevensonListen in as director Christopher-Rashee Stevenson and performers Malcolm B. Hines and Jonathan Schenk of {Flying} Dutchman, currently running at The Tank, discuss words as tools, “gender-blurring,” the multiple modes of being in a person, finding danger, finding a way to create room for conversation after the show, and how Amiri Baraka’s poetic language resonates in 2018.

“…it’s already uncomfortable language—we live in an uncomfortable society, and we’re not put on this planet to be comfortable…it’s about sexuality, it’s about human beings and what we go through…but especially the psyche of the black man, being in this world…”
