In the midst of Minneapolis’s Farmers’ Market, in an elaborately designed vendor tent, a series of tableaux vivants reveal several diners in formal dinner wear at a feast. Progressing from decorous to giddy to sloppy to violent, the main course of the dinner is revealed to be a woman that the diners consume. Inspired by the life of Cora Pearl, the piece ended with the diners turning on each other until the table itself ate the diners.
