My Barbarian is an art collective made up of Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alexandro Segade. Their work uses performance to play with social difficulties, theatricalize historic problems, and imagine ways of being together. They make plays, masks, videos, drawings, music, installations, texts, events, puppets, and paintings.
The collective have presented work all around the world, in many museums, festivals, galleries and public spaces. My Barbarian originated in Los Angeles in 2000 and today its members are based in LA and New York.
