The light is dimmed in the auditorium; the audience is completely absorbed looking at the screen to take in the projection of the movie. The flickering of the images starts but then all in the sudden a man appears in front of the screen and breaks out a piece of it. It has the shape of a cube. He puts it on the floor and moves it away from the screen. Delighted he notices that the flickering also reaches this new arranged fragment of the screen. Quickly he breaks out more and more pieces and thus creates a multitude of small, geometrically altered screens, which he arranges anew in the entire auditorium. In order to still be able to take in all the flickering of the images, the audience has to stand up and duck down, twist and turn. The man seems to be obsessed to capture the now apparently freely flying images with his cubes, thus giving them a new destination and maybe a new meaning.

“Cube Pusher” is a cinematic and experimental performance, which aims to question and resolve the generally rigid relationship between audience and screen. By breaking down the screen in small cubes and consequently also the images the spectator is meant to be taken out of its passive, “two dimensional” consuming of images and can, if it wishes so, participate in pushing the cubes.

Thus a experimental and provocative game of video-images and music, speech and projection surfaces emerges, which aims to create new audio-visual worlds and forms of storytelling.

Soon the spectator finds himself in a universe of images and sounds, which makes him amused and upset, dance and stunned…
