April Marten with Eric Hines, Katie Gentner, Dede Sanders, Michael Santoro
Performance Art + Installation: Sleep with Me explores platonic displays of Intimacy (PDI) in public/private space. Is it possible to create spaces which invite love, play and tenderness, while testing the limits of empathy, trust and un-spoken consent? The work is an entry point for addressing anxiety around connection, asking the Question: WHO IS IT SAFE TO CONNECT WITH?
