GoofsA, a collaborative work by Adi Shniderman (Video), Ella Ben-Aharon (Choreography), and Matthias Neumann (Architecture), was the product of a 4-month Artist-in-Residency program at Makor, NYC. Blending performance, moving structure, and video, GoofsA, (a Hebrew play on words, Body & Box), transformed an existing space through performance in architectural as well as perceptual terms. The audience, much like the performers, negotiated these fluctuating spatial and perceptual dynamics by having to move in accordance with the “moving wall,” which abruptly transformed the space, thus rendered the distinction between performer and audience insignificant.
