Squares Will Fall is a multidirectional loudspeaker choreography performed live by three acrobats of the Circus. The audience is free to move around during the performance and make audio recordings for their personal use.

The piece is about absence. A clownery without an actor. The audience's jouissance is facilitated by animating sound objects which substitute the presence of a singer, a band, a show. And yet there is an act.

Squares Will Fall spins around the themes of travesty, farce, and clownery. Clownery is the title of a Russian underground movie from 1989 about Russian writer and artist Daniil Kharms (1989 was also the breaking point of the soviet republic): Clownery, the tragicomedy of the absurd, is based on the works of Daniil Kharms (1905–1942). Trying to recreate reality 30s, who came to the flowering of creativity of Kharms, the director plays the style of filming, acting at that time and enters into the picture, "the aged" sound. Thus, he achieved maximum reliability of the author's text and sound to help the viewer to immerse themselves in the atmosphere in which the classic absurdism lived and worked. This is a world of illusions, allusions, and associations, reflecting a stream of consciousness living in an era of detachment.
