Reindeer Werk at Goldsmiths College, April 1975

One of the best of the early Reindeer Werk performances. We were invited by Goldsmiths students to perform there.
Dirk Larsen was painted completely black. He situated himself in a wardrobe on wheels to which he ha had attached two live chickens with strings.
Thom Puckey had bound himself with cord and cloth to a construction on wheels made of old chairs, and maneuvered himself around.
At a certain moment Dirk Larsen slashed open some hanging bags filled with coloured flocking.
The performance was improvised, therefore unpredictable.
