On November 20th 2006 Sebastian Bosse drove to his high school in Emsdetten, Germany and opened fire against hundreds of students. During a live performance set up with 12 actors performing Bosse's last words before committing suicide, the actors along with members of the audience were monitored with thermal cameras and empatica bracelets.

A combination between behavioral research, acting and neurological experiment, this project (conducted by Neurologist Vittorio Gallese) intends to highlight an empatical correlation between actors and audiences, and their response to non-fiction material within a studio fictional setting.
