Parliament at Duke: First of Four Days

Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

The Nasher Museum and Michael Kliën, associate professor of the practice of dance in Duke's Dance Program, present a performance art piece involving 100 participants within an empty gallery. The group gathers in the gallery every day for four days, six to 10 hours per day. PARLIAMENT involves such simple rules as no talking, no electronic devices, no reading material all day long. Kliën has presented versions of PARLIAMENT in Amsterdam, Greece, Brussels, London and New York. To find out more, please contact Hannah Bondurant at
