PROMPTUS III: What to call the space between our pillows?
PROMPTUS III: What to call the space between our pillows? aims to examine cultural and personal definitions of intimacy through sound, movement, prose, and projection-based works. The installation/performance seeks answers to questions such as how do we perform intimacy?, does your definition of intimacy match my definition? and how does our understanding of intimacy warp in the digital age? Curated by dancer and choreographer Liana Kleinman and encompassing the viewpoints of each of the performers, the evening explores multiple definitions of intimacy, and encourages the audience to share their experiences.

PROMPTUS is a trans-disciplinary collective of performers and performance-makers committed to curating community-focused happenings. Founded by Robert Fleitz and Tyler Cunningham in 2018, each event poses an instigating question which is interpreted by a curator through performance, pedagogy, composition, or a combination of all three. By asking artists to work in modalities other than their own rigorously trained discipline, a space of vulnerability is created that allows for an audience to engage with complex forms in new and equitable ways.
