Is it possible to defy the narrow constraints of our personal identities, discover and develop new fields of human relationships, and achieve co-existence on equal, soul-democratic terms?

Throughout 2023, Professor Michael Kliën worked with a research group in the Laboratory for Social Choreography at the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University. They created a uniquely immersive experience of social choreography, "The Utopians," for the inclusive performance ensemble En Dynamei.

Duke University students and researchers joined the cast for the premiere of "The Utopians" at the Athens Epidaurus Festival, one of Europe's most prestigious festivals, in June 2023.

A recording of the premiere of "The Utopians" (running time: 70 minutes) will be screened at the Rubenstein Art Center (Ruby) Film Theater on Feb 26, 2024, at 7:00 p.m. Professor Kliën will give an introduction. No reservations are required.
