Choreograph Me is an ongoing project in which Offeh invites audiences to use his body as a material for the production of a series of performative gestures. With Offeh performing live for up to an hour, the audience generate instructions for actions, movements and gestures, they are invited to participate and join Offeh in the fulfilment of the instructions, or to direct and edit from afar.
Choreograph Me, originally commissioned by Mima, Middleborough, uses the framework of instructions to form a collectively choreographed piece. By offering his body as a material to be experimented with, Offeh explores the question of how an artist can be used as a sculptural material and his labour made useful to an audience.
