DUTCHMAN

 

GRAPHIC DESIGN BY YAHZMINE CLAYTON

Dutchman is an emotionally charged and highly symbolic version of the Adam and Eve story, wherein a naive bourgeois black man is murdered by an insane and calculating white seductress, who is coldly preparing for her next victim as the curtain comes down. The emotionally taut, intellectual verbal fencing between Clay (the black Adam) and Lula (a white Eve) spirals irrevocably to the symbolic act of violence that will apparently repeat itself over and over again. Baraka's play is one of mythical proportions, a ritual drama that has a sociological purpose: to galvanize his audience into revolutionary action.

REVIEWS

 

"...a pivotal play not only at a particular juncture in 20th-century American culture but also in Mr. Baraka’s increasingly politicized career."

New York Times

"The playwright's political leanings show through in
Dutchman's incendiary take on 1960s race relations. This is a subject that never gets old, as evidenced by the audience's vocal reactions to the play's denouement."
