David Morris: Scenic designer for "The Shipment" and "King Lear"

“The Shipment,” a play about African-American identity written and directed by Young Jean Lee, with scenic design by David Evans Morris, assistant professor of theatre, went out on tour this fall following a sold-out New York run at The Kitchen in January 2009.  The show is currently playing at the Rotterdamse Schouwberg (Rotterdam, The Netherlands), following recent stops at PICA in Portland, Oregon; Zürcher Theaterspektakel in Zurich, Switzerland; and the KDFA festival in Brussels.  In October and November “The Shipment” will be performed at On The Boards (Seattle), the Festival d’Automne (Paris) and the Hebbel Theater (Berlin), while 2010 dates include Chicago, Pittsburgh, Chapel Hill, the Wiener Festwochen (Vienna), and a multi-city Japan/Australia tour.  Professor Morris is again collaborating with Ms. Lee on her next show, a reimagining of Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” which is currently in development.  Young Jean Lee’s “Lear” will have its premiere at SoHo Rep in New York City in January 2010.
