In the beginning of the performance, there is a projector, a pile of pizza boxes and water mugs on the floor of the performance space. I walk on to the space holding a white bowl under my arm. I turn on the projector and show the text excerpt from Eleanor Catton’s novel The Rehearsal to audience to read. I open the first pizza box in the pile and start to chew it. Instead of swallowing, I spit the mushed pizza from my mouth into the bowl. Once in a while I take a theatrical tear-stick from my pocket and spread it under my eyes to create tears running down my cheeks and snot running from the nose.
The performance ends according how the audience reacts on the instructions described on the text script.
