SARAH GOFFMAN

How would you describe your performance in Workout?

Seven oki-do breathing yoga sessions in one day, accompanied by music. Participants are welcome to take off their shoes and stretch out in the space.

In what ways is your performance a work out?

Each session is a work out, with gradual alterations and movement.

How do you envisage the audience engaging with your work? Is there audience participation?

I expect people will be able to take their place on a mat and either attempt to copy some of my movements or to stretch out and adopt their own poses.

How do you approach transforming the MCA’s new Level 1 North Gallery in one day?

Quite simply with a few videos, the main element will be the sound and the yoga mats.

Will you have an online presence allowing the audience outside the Museum to follow your performance?

No.
