“By the way, this is not a story by me—” TROUBLE is a collaboration between myself and five artist / educator friends. Staged around a pile of melting ice, the performance functions as a space for practicing intentional relation between parts of oneself, and between self and others (both human and otherwise). It doubles as a living bibliography of techniques which guide my work as an animist-oriented maker and educator.

TROUBLE was performed at Human Resources Los Angeles in March 2023.
