Two men (or two women) meet on the stage of a (packed with spectators) theatre. One is the Operator of the Experiment, the other one offers to become a Guinea pig for a set fee. However, the Experiment resembles a simple statistical recording: the Operator asks some encyclopedic-like questions regarding Lebensraum’s Nazi theory, the Vital Space – and then presents him with a globe, asking him to pinpoint various world capitals. Everything seems almost funny – but once the Guinea pig touches Kuala Lumpur, a gunshot kills a spectator in the audience.
For how long can the Guinea pig withstand such an improbability? How much negotiation with his sense of morality is permissible? And for how long can the spectators maintain the theatrical convention, while watching the head of the person sitting next to them being blown by a bullet?
