A square. Four-by-four metres. Geometric shape that awaits its content. An installation of a square placed in the gallery turns it into the so-called contemporary art that is intentionally provocative. Together with other quirky installations and accompanying marketing moves, it is intended to make us reconsider our lives from private spheres all the way to the fundamental humanistic issues. Christian, the lead character, is curator of an intended exhibition with square as its conceptual leitmotif. He initially comes across as attractive, successful, self-confident, even narcissistic. He does well with his salary and risk-free intellectual liberalism. By the end, he is transformed into an ordinary worried man, embarrassed one-night-stander, despondent divorced father, and former snob who had lost his job …
 
The internationally acclaimed film (Palme d’Or from Cannes) based on the screenplay by the director Ruben Ostlund is brought to you as theatre adaptation in world première.
