The Squaring of the Circle is not only a mathematical problem, it is a meditation on human on one hand, and divine on the other. In many cultures, the square represents the earth, while the circle represents the sky.
The performance takes place on the territory of a round table, and the knives are initially scattered around a square cutting board.
Hands enter the scene and push the knives one by one on the board. The latter, too small, makes the task burlesque, while the wounded hands, leave little by little bloody prints on the knives.
