Jury Duty was originally performed as a solo in the evening-length work Electric Haiku: Calm as Custard. The piece was also performed as a solo titled Down at the Courthouse but the name was later reverted to the original title.

Weis tells a story about being called for jury duty in which she weaves together civil service, disability politics, and humor. As she speaks and dances onstage, two live images of her are projected as one on a screen behind her, exemplifying the duality of Weis’ body.
