    PARLIAMENT at Duke: A Pioneering Work of Situational Choreography by choreographer and artist Michael Kliën of Duke’s Dance Program

    March 7 – 10, 2018

    PARLIAMENT at Duke was supported by the Nasher Museum of Art, The Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Duke Dance Program.

    PARLIAMENT is a work by choreographer and artist Michael Kliën (born in Hollabrunn, Austria, 1973). Through the silent interaction of 100 persons over four days, a citizen’s parliament is cultivated. Participants sharing this space enact new forms of communion by not speaking and by not using electronic devices. The day is spent tuning their perception to the underlying dynamics of the individual and the collective mind, sensing and interacting with nature’s self-organizing patterns. Traces inscribed in gestures and relations are left behind by each individual, and may potentially be picked up, developed, and propagated by someone else.

    A situation unfolds in which participants hold council about fundamental issues, the core problems of living: How should we be in this world as individuals and how should we be in this world together? PARLIAMENT negotiates the ethics that underlie daily interactions as well as political acts. It challenges us to entrust what our own senses tell us, to feel the life and struggles of others, and to form social bonds that allow everyone to contribute to society.
    Visitors are welcome to move silently among the participants in the gallery. Allow adequate time for the work to resonate.
