Art as a paradigm shifting tactic.

Birthed out of the cracks and crevices that exist between the stronghold of capitalism and commercialism,
the performance collective Child of No Nation finds inspiration and fuel in the mystery and madness that
exists outside the castle walls.
An artistic revolution is happening out there right now, a transmutation of passions and ideals, and that
means society is changing as well. Artistic expression is beginning to once again realize the responsibility it
has to serve the community. We have been intentionally oversaturated by mass media and we must rise up
out of this externally induced coma and create the world we want to live in. We must find our way back to
that surreal animal soul scream that exists inside every one of us. It is time to rise up on all fronts and
prepare for what is to come. This happening is the sound of the people rising up. Now more than ever we
must point to the truth of where we are.

Child Of No Nation is: Leah V Bachar, New York experimental performance artist and poet,
together with Portland artists Brad Hamers (Through Flames, Phlegm, Two Ton Sloth), and
Jessica Daugherty (jdaugh, Through Flames), and Cypress Atlas (Cat Child, Hairface) of New Orleans ,
all once members of the oldest experimental performance collective, The Living Theatre.
They are all now founding members of the Performace Collective, Al Límite,
coming to you alive and radicalized.
