THE CARRACK MODERN ART—The concept is simple; the results are anything but. In the "Prompts" series at the Carrack, artists create short performances in response to an enigmatic prompt, leading to an excitingly raw and spontaneous show bound by a pliable theme. As the series is run by DIDA cofounder Justin Tornow, it runs heavy on modern dance, though you might also see poetry, performance art and points outlying. The prompt for this installment is "Resistance," and the line-up tackling it includes dancers Stacy Thomas Wolfson, Suzanne Beahrs and Tornow's COMPANY, multimedia artist Matthew Young and photographer Anna M. Maynard, among others. The series is open to artists at diverse levels of accomplishment, so after you go and see what it's about, you can find out what the next prompt is and start dreaming up your own performance to pitch. 7 p.m., $5 suggested donation, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 919-213-6666, —Brian Howe
