Liminal Archive is an immersive theatrical experience that guides audiences through intimate moments of isolation experienced by artists as they traverse the unknown during the early days of the pandemic. Liminal Archive began as an open-source platform, providing a cultural exchange where international artists could collaborate together during a lockdown and mass uprisings, and it has collected more than 40 artworks, including music, digital art and theater. Al Límite has curated these offerings into a 40-minute odyssey of live performances, projections and audio journeys where we venture through the past, the present, and find our way together into the future.
The show features partial nudity.

About the Company
Al Límite is a placeless, borderless collective of multi-disciplinary, multi-racial, international artists striving towards the decolonization of the body, and building community resiliency through art and performance. We devise performances, rituals, and celebrations as acts of creative resistance in non-traditional public spaces and sites of injustice. We seek liberation through theatre. Our work engages the audience as active participants co-creating a collective experience.
