Until this point, D has been waiting in the cardboard house behind, when the lights are turned off and the performance space goes dark, D comes out of the house with the instrument he/she has brought and begins to play it.
Also, while playing the instrument in the dark he/she uses the camera to take pictures of himself/herself using the flash.
When the lights come back on he/she returns to the cardboard house.
The lights are turned off by B based on his/her judgment after A hits the drum with a nut or bolt.
After a while, on his/her judgment, A sneezes and this becomes the signal for B to turn on the lights again.
B and C must choose parts of A’s body to step on that are physically stressful/painful, but at the same time they must be careful not break weaker bones in A’s body, like the ribs, sternum or collarbone.
Also, they must not step on the boneless area of the stomach area where they would be applying pressure directly to the inner organs.
They all use the props they bring to the performance to interact with each other.
When the alarm that A has set goes off [after 15 minutes] they make an effort to move as they are [in the same posture/positions] to the cardboard house behind them.
At the sound of the alarm, D comes out of the house and sounds his/her instrument.
When the timing seems right, D turns out the lights and the performance ends.
The ending should come no more than five minutes after the alarm sounds.
The entire performance should be conducted in silence without any words spoken.
