Invitation to Participate in Performance Art

The Nasher Museum presents PARLIAMENT at Duke: A Pioneering Work of Situational Choreography, by Michael Kliën of Duke’s Dance Program. About 100 participants will step into a work of art and discover space to breathe, freedom from screens, a return to their bodies, a retreat into strangeness. The group will gather in the gallery every day for four days, six to 10 hours per day. Kliën has presented versions of PARLIAMENT in Amsterdam, Greece, Brussels, London and New York.

Wednesday, March 7, 10 AM to 5 PM

Thursday, March 8, 10 AM to 9 PM
Friday, March 9, 10 AM to 5 PM
Saturday, March 10, 10 AM to 5 PM

To find out how to participate for all four days, or to commit to about six hours, please email Hannah Bondurant at

The entire time they observe themselves and each other, whilst building a tentative system of exchange through simple means of movement. The space offers no particular sensory stimulation; all day is spent tuning perception to the under lying dynamics of the individual and collective mind....
