Introduced four years ago, the Collision series highlights cross-disciplinary performance: musicians and sound artists in collaboration with visual artists working in video, film, dance, theater, and other media arts. The results consistently challenge, stimulate, and surprise audiences with an eye and ear for current local and international experimental music and performance.
Building upon our commitment to infuse local arts with outside voices and foster connections among international artist communities, The Lab and Mission Creek Music & Arts Festival is proud to showcase five performers from Sweden at this year's Collision Festival: Nim, MAG, Christian Pallin, Curly Lou, and The Toilet. In addition, Koloni from Sweden will DJ every night of Collision.
