Haus of PVMNT began in 2018 as strictly movement-based performance creation. Our performance creation has always been committed to challenging social climates, both past, and present, from our queer perspectives as Generation Z artists. In addition to our performance creation, we have expanded our vision for what PVMNT can be: an intersectional curatorial practice. Haus of PVMNT is a place where you can come to discover an illumination of life & art through the work, thoughts, dialogue & collaboration between artists across all disciplines & mediums. Discover not only in-haus projects, but also the work of artists everywhere through our guest-haus platform. Our dream for PVMNT has always existed beyond the proscenium stage, ideals of performance, and the singularity of dance. We are thrilled to continue improving // expanding this vehicle for community building, interdisciplinary collaboration, and education.
