From 22-28 April 2013, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) will be showcasing 'seven days of experimental performances' in a program entitled Workout.
"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." - Museum of Contemporary Art
The seven artists whom will be performing throughout the week will include: David Capra, Domenico de Clario, Brian Fuata, Sarah Goffman, Agatha Gothe-Snape with Susan Gibb, Jodie Whalen, and The Motel Sisters (performative/inter-arts collaboration between Liam Benson and Naomi Oliver).
The Motel Sisters will be performing on Tuesday 23 April, showcasing a new work My Little Kony (2013). Recreating the iconic Bed-In for Peace protest by Yoko Ono and John Lennon, the artists will "take on the role of 'slacktivists', lying in bed with their laptops, ordering takeaway food, watching reality TV clips on YouTube and 'liking' socially conscious causes on social media."
