fault lines is a multidisciplinary collaboration with queer and Asian performance artists, experimental composers, and a visual artist. In this unprecedented moment, we witness the ongoing pandemics entrench inequality and erode the already brittle infrastructure we stand upon. As seismologist Nicholas van der Elst explains “seen from above, [faults] appear as broad zones of deformation, with many faults braided together.” The tectonic forces of xenophobia, orientalism, homophobia and transphobia collide with climate catastrophe - leaving us dancing on unstable ground. Fort Funston is uniquely positioned upon a bluff that is made up of sedimentary rocks that formed along the San Andreas fault line over the last two million years.
