Workout: 7 days of experimental performance has now finished.

Watch seven Australian artists in seven days ‘workout’ at the MCA.

Each artist has a single day to present temporary works using the body and everyday materials, drawing on the double meaning of workout as both a strenuous exercise routine and a test of performance capability.

Behind-the-scenes comes front and centre as setting-up and packing-down takes place in front of you.

Artists: David Capra, Domenico de Clario, Brian Fuata, Sarah Goffman, Agatha Gothe-Snape with Susan Gibb, The Motel Sisters (Liam Benson and Naomi Oliver) and Jodie Whalen.
