Collision Practice
is a live performance work that explores exercises for falling as a collective process for politically tumultuous times. This work contends with socio-economic realities of burnout culture in a moment of political crises and upheaval. We may not all get the luxury of slowing down to mindfully check-in. So, how do we as a community help each other in these moments of intensity? How do we soften the impact of an otherwise tiring and fatigue inducing time? Collision Practice playfully engages the body in a moment of impact to explore possibilities for mutual aid and joy even while under duress

Collision Practice was initially curated for an evening of performances by John Birtle at Human Resources in Los Angeles. The piece has since been performed at the LGBT Center, Los Angeles, for the group exhibition a place to stay curated by Pau S. Pescador.
