A treadmill functions as a site and symbol of the pressures of daily life. The artist is trapped on this machine as she performs a series of choreographed gestures. Participants are invited to control the speed, offer water, or even take a turn running as she labours to keep up with the task she has set herself and the capricious whims of passers-by.
