Applause, Applause


Is there, perhaps, something in your life which begs applause? Or maybe you want to help break a world record, or affirm strangers, or do you just like clapping? Rumpus contributor Dustin Luke Nelson is putting on two hours of unbroken applause at the Walker Art Center’s Open Field in Minneapolis on Thursday (6/26) from 5:30-7:30.

If the idea of nonstop clapping sounds exhausting, fear not—participants are invited to partake for as long or as little as they want.
