First Annual Report, a one-off performance devised as a musical “opera non-opera”, consists of 15 musical passages performed by a Seymour-fronted band. The performance is a response to ideas introduced via New Dirty Enterprises, which comprised an “initial stock offering” of a prospectively broader commercial model; a desk and table where no- one was actually supposed to sit; 1km of steel tubing (the physical manifestation of the stock ‘currency’); and pizza boxes containing information on how to start a pizza delivery franchise. The idea was borrowed from British designer William Morris, who suggested that social uprising would be instigated by revolutionaries taking over bakeries. For Seymour, pizza was a logical contemporary alternative to bread.
