Kliën's choreographic work has been situated around the world. He has been commissioned by leading institutions such as Ballett Frankfurt, Martha Graham Dance Company, New Museum, Irish Museum of Modern Art and Hayward Gallery. As Artistic Director/CEO of Daghdha (2003-2011, Ireland) he developed notions of an extended, socio-politically engaged choreography often referred to as ‘Social Choreography’. Kliën’s artistic practice encompasses interdisciplinary thinking, critical writing, curatorial projects, and centrally, choreographic works equally at home in the Performing as well as the Fine Arts. He has been awarded a PhD from Edinburgh College of Art in 2009 and has been lecturing about his findings at various distinguished academic and national institutions.
