Performance: The Cleaner

You are invited to take part in a completely new, week-long public participatory experience by Marina Abramović, choirs, singers and performers at the Eric Ericson Hall. You will be asked to leave all of your belongings including phones, watches, cameras, coats and bags at the door. Together, we will create a shared experience.

Marina Abramović is a pioneer in performance art. Her new collective performance piece explores how we create community through shared experiences and basic human contact.

The participants are Marina Abramović, Lynsey Peisinger, 30 performers, a large number of singers and choirs – and you. For the first time ever, Abramović uses choral singing as an integral part of a collective performance. The singing forms a non-stop soundscape, which lasts throughout the opening hours, seven days in a row.

Make sure to visit the exhibition Marina Abramović – The Cleaner in conjunction with the performance work. The opening hours for the Museum and the exhibition are: Tuesday 10.00–20.00, Wednesday–Thursday 10.00–18.00, Friday 10.00–20.00 and Saturday–Sunday, 11.00–18.00.
