The monumental geometrical patterns of the public spaces of the Humboldt Forum symbolise and (re-)enact the power of past and present governments and institutions. The building imposes seriousness and stiffness on present bodies. To counteract this, the dancers play with a “soft” geometry, experimenting with different properties of the cubic form, within, beyond and between their bodies, and with materials found digging in the rubbish containers of the Forum, remains of the construction site.
