Description

A twelve-hour event consisting of three actions repeated once every hour by the participants.

Each action:
Sitting - 1/2 hour
Walking - 15 minutes
Singing Past Guilts -15 minutes

These were performed in unison. The first two actions, sitting and walking, took place in the Green Room. The third action, singing, was performed on the museum balcony. Bells rang throughout the day to indicate the death of guilt. (Montano 1981, pages unnumbered)
