COLLAPSE

Performance series, various location / 2015 – present

Bodies, asphalt, grass, air, wood, wind, weather, gravity, myriad other entities

standing /
letting go /
collapsing /
thinking /
forgetting /
thinking, again /
then a knee joint /
the sudden weight of a hand /
pulling it all /
dissolving the past /
remembering the future /
the time of not-thinking /
when quivering on the edge /
a foot drags sideways

every thing lurches /
trembling /
surrendering /
the threshold of no return /
now collapsing / collapsing /

collapsing

“if power is complex, scattered and productive, so must be our resistance to it.”

Rosi Braidotti, The Posthuman
