In the tramway that carries the executioners, a car is turning on a spit and the musicians play in live in the front carrier. For the public, the meeting is easy: 5 minutes between 5pm and 5.05pm on the central place of Amsterdam. Although the execution is different every day, it comes with the same ritual which is deliberately provocative. The executioners run out and bring back a car. Women fasten seat belt and put on a full-face helmet while men put on gloves. Afterwards, the car is lifted on the side, and then rolled aside until the place of the execution. Circus tent pillars are stick into the ground; the car is tied up to it. Desgarones is a Spanish word from Corrida that means “tear”.
