My Barbarian’s ‘The Night Epi$ode’ – in this six-part video installation, the performers explore the economic recession through tropesscience fiction. Inspired by television shows including Rod Serling’s Night Gallery, the narrative involves a romance between a woman and a supernatural being; the former recovers from losing her job while the latter consults witch doctors when his insurance won’t cover his medical condition.Incorporating French existentialism and absurdist dialogue, My Barbarian presents an oft-studied political fault with a novel perspective
