Eviscerating boundaries is Mem Nahadr's modus operandi, a performance artist whose work spans theatre, film, and clubs. Her 2009 record Eclecticism earned critical acclaim for its—well—eclecticism, while her 2008 play Madwoman: A Contemporary Opera gave her an opportunity to showcase her larger-than-life aesthetic and multi-octave vocal range.
