The performers fall on the ground all at the same time. When everyone is lying on the ground, the ones who are below other bodies leave the performance area slowly. Meanwhile, the ones who are lying on other bodies have to hold and keep the postures that they are having (imagining that they are lying the on invisible bodies). When they are not able to hold the postures anymore, they leave gradually until no performers are in the performance area.
