My Barbarian presents a version of The Broke People's Baroque People's Theater, which they originally performed in New York City at The Kitchen. From The Kitchen's press release on this performance: "Evoking an excess of theatrical styles, from Baroque spectacle to camp drag, the piece presents the
absurdities of the American financial crisis as a performance of wastefulness, trashiness and
class warfare...Structured as a play within a game within a play, this performance is an amalgamated découpage of detoured theater texts, ornate musical numbers, and masked interactions. A recital of the
grandeur of excess executed through impoverished means, Broke People's Baroque Peoples'
Theater depicts an encounter between an imagined theater company and an audience. Broke
People's Baroque Peoples' Theater is written and directed by My Barbarian (Malik Gaines, Jade
Gordon and Alexandro Segade). Music is by Gaines and Segade with scenic design and
costumes by Gordon and Segade.
