"Parliament" (1st NY Edition) by Michael Kliën
RSVP required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to participate.
The Segal Center is proud to present the CUNY version of Parliament (1st NY Session). Parliament is a pioneering work of situational choreography and exploration of ecological aesthetics. The work offers participants a critically needed withdrawal from normal modes of social action and provides instead an innovative site for 21st-century experimentalist cooperation. Embedded in the immediacy of Michael Kliën’s choreographic framework, citizen-performers, working in silence, come together to bear witness to and hold council amidst the elemental phenomena and fundamental concerns of collectively lived experience. Pointing towards unseen and unexperienced modes of social organization, Parliament traverses, probes and navigates the paradigms that animate our present-day political relations.
*There will be no non-participating audience. Participants do not need to have any performance experience, and multiple levels of participation/engagement will be possible.
