With Rubicubism, Invader tore the Rubik's Cube out of its established frameworks and created a movement within which the cubes have become a means of expression. What can a theatre actor, who is otherwise an avid Rubik’s Cube player, do with them?

In Rubik-Ludizem, Nik Škrlec transfers Rubik's Cubes to the theatre and the Internet, using them as props, puppets, characters and protagonists of an online cabaret.

Nik Škrlec is an actor, TV presenter and YouTuber. In 2016, he graduated from acting school, was a member of the ensemble of the Slovenian National Theatre Drama Ljubljana for three years and is now an independent cultural worker. He has received several awards for his work, including the Borštnik Young Actor Award and the Audience Award of the 47th Slovenian Drama Week for the play Naj gre vse v π [Let it all go to π].

He is the former Slovenian record holder in reciting the decimals of the number pi and is currently breaking the world record for the number of Rubik's Cubes assembled underwater in one breath.
