Tourists from the Future
An Evening with My Barbarian
Monday, April 16 (that’s tonight!), 7 PM, Theater 2, MoMA
Science-fiction new wave musicals, the selling of souls to witches, the culture of excess, alter-egos, Los Angeles cultural production, the middle class collapse—these all seem like topics worthy of discussion on a Monday night.
From MoMA’s website:
The Los Angeles–based performance collective My Barbarian—Malik Gaines (b. Visalia, California, 1973), Jade Gordon (b. Santa Rosa, California, 1975), and Alexandro Segade (b. San Diego, California, 1973)—combine their eclectic background in theater, theory, and contemporary art to create incisive, campy, site-specific plays, concerts, theatrical situations, and video installations. All three group members will be present to discuss their most recent works.More info here.
