A white man and an Asian woman are in a bedroom. It appears to be night. The woman pours tea with forced elegance. The man assesses her with the intelligence of a crow. At first, it appears that this is some kind of solicitation between soldier and geisha. But as time wears on, the cracks in their performance begin to show, and their true relationship unravels in a series of startling revelations. A muscular and smoldering two-hander, Orientalism is an explosive meditation on race, sex, and performance.
