Hey all, a brief clip from last Thursday’s fabulous My Barbarian performance in the Atrium. This LA-based performance collective has been producing “site-specific plays, musical concerts, theatrical situations & video installations” since 2000, and this was a great introduction for many of us in the audience that night, as we were treated to a sampling/retrospective of My Barbarian projects, in what they called ‘retroactive self-appropriation’ of their ‘post living ante-action theater’. The number here is called “La Reina de L.A.”, from Non-Western.
And, they’re speaking tonight at SFAI as part of the visiting artists and scholars lecture series. (FREE! GO!). Details.
Grazie mille to Jim Granato for videography & quick hand-off on the clip!
