My Barbarian: Bride of the White Widow
Miami Dade College Museum of Art and Design presents Living Together, a cross-disciplinary series of performance art, film and video screenings, talks, and workshops held in venues across the greater Miami area and reflecting the cultural, social, and political realities of how we live now. Living Together presents My Barbarian: Bride of the White Widow.

Who put the gold in the Golden Age? Bride of the White Widow, a multi-media event by performance art collective My Barbarian (Malik Gaines, Jade Gordon, and Alexandro Segade), playfullyand criticallywrestles with this question in a surreal, post-colonial tale about the doomed crew of the White Widow, seventeenth-century Dutch sailors lost in the so-called New World. A show within a show, Bride of the White Widow is an interactive play, exploring contemporary issues of cultural appropriation, globalism, and environmental collapse through song, dance, and games with the audience. A restaging of My Barbarians Voyage of the White Widow, originally commissioned by De Appel, Amsterdam, in 2006, and included in Performa 02 at the Whitney Museum, New York, the performance at the Light Box in Miami explores My Barbarians sixteen-year journey as a performance collective.
Working at the intersection of visual art, theater, and critical practice, My Barbarian uses performance to theatricalize social problems and imagine ways of being together. Founded in Los Angeles in 2000, the groups work moves through different modes that prepare for, present, and represent live performance: music composition, plays, and other texts; costumes, masks, puppets and sets; video; and drawings and prints. The group has performed and exhibited widely in art, music, theater, and public spaces, while maintaining a focus on the provocation of theatricality in the visual-art context. My Barbarian has had solo exhibitions at the New Museum and Participant, Inc., New York; Museo El Eco, Mexico City; Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects and Human Resources, Los Angeles; Gallery 400, University of Chicago; Transformer Gallery, Washington, D.C.; and Yaffo 23, Jerusalem. The group has been included in the Whitney Biennial, two Performa Biennials, two California Biennials, the Montreal Biennial, and the Baltic Triennial.
