411 – 411 – 31 – 31 – 411 looks like an algorithm, a password, or perhaps a mysterious mathematical code. These numbers are the starting point of SquareTwo, in which three jugglers explore a route with the audience through a striking building, part of a city or a special location, in which the physical and numerical worlds increasingly become one.

Based on the mathematical art objects of the Rotterdam artist Don Satijn, Tall Tales investigates how emotion, form and content can be captured in mathematical codes.

SquareTwo lets you look at juggling, visual art and your environment with a renewed look.
