Feeding the Orchestra

by Robert Watts


Robert Watts had left the execution of the performance to Ann Noël, who asked the art critic Henry Martin to help her perform the piece. The event took place in the amphitheatre in the middle of the park.

With the choir standing on the platform at the centre of the amphitheatre, Ann Noël walked down from the highest side of the amphitheatre, unravelling a coil of rope. Henry Martin was holding on to the opposite end of the rope. When Ann Noël reached the conductor onstage, she raised the rope above her head, and Henry released a bundle of sausages attached to a pulley. The sausages came rolling down the rope to the choir who enthusiastically consumed the lot of them.
