Collapse

Collapse is a duet with gravity, a willingness to explore surrender, and to sense into resistance. It’s a dance with forces beyond our control and a meditation on the cyclical processes of life. By placing living, breathing containers of time – bodies – into different environments, the slow tempo of this dance of deep attention, highlights the surrounding tempos and rhythms. I’m especially interested in juxtaposing mechanical or technologically driven speeds that occur in urban spaces: driven by the needs of the economy, the daily routines of commuters, workers, etc where through its dissonance to the rush, Collapse seems to hold a sense of threat.

“I found Collapse, utterly, utterly compelling.” Astrida Neimanis, author
