At performances of Anna Furse Performs an Anatomy Act: A Show and Tell, the audience were each given black velvet bags and told not to open them. Inside was a pencil and the following cards that they would be asked to fill in at different points during the performance. The bag was supposed to feel a little transgressive, so that they only put their hands in when they were asked. They were prompted to feel: a piece of beeswax, a piece of bone, and a heart-shaped gum sweet. These bags were designed as highly tactile objects where fingers rather than eyes were used to explore the materials, as a reference to the delicate haptics involved in dissection.
