Post-Living Ante-Action Theater

My Barbarian

Post-Living Ante-Action Theater is a public performance and video installation to be shown in Europe, the Middle East and the Americas, resulting from workshops with artists in both countries. The work will be generated in close collaboration with local participants using techniques developed by My Barbarian, a Los Angeles-based performance collective, as part of an ongoing project. Workshops and cultural research with participating artists will result in visual, musical, theatrical and politically critical public demonstrations. Documentation of this process as well as original work will ultimately form a video installation that will explore themes of collaboration and participation in uneasy partnerships.
