20 Moves is the untold story of how the world's best selling puzzle toy "The Rubik's Cube" came to
market and the impact it had on the world around it.
Our story focuses on Tom Kremer a holocaust survivor and eternal forward thinker who stumbled upon
an unwanted, unpatented puzzle game at the Nuremberg toy fair in 1979. If not for a casual glance
out of the corner of his eye from thirty yards, the world would have never experienced this magical
cube. The puzzle was invented in Hungary by professor Erno Rubik in 1974 and started out as a
pedagogical aid for his small group of architecture students, it would go on to be played with
by 1/5th of the world's population.
20 Moves explores the world of the cube from its creation behind the iron curtain to the effects
it had on the fall of communism and the creation of free market trading in those former communist
nations. There are many adopted uses of the cube, everything from teaching high level group
theory mathematics to large scale mosaic artworks and of course the phenomenon of speed cubing.
The cube has truly brought people together from all different countries, age groups and walks of life.
We follow the amazing story of bringing the cube to the west, how it was introduced and marketed
and what caused it to be the biggest fad of the 1980's. The image of the cube would go on to
symbolize an entire generation like nothing before it ever could. We learn why the cube died
in the 80's and how it ended up back in Tom Kremer's hands, he then made it his life goal to
bring it back from extinction.
The many faces, layers, and sides of 20 Moves is exactly like the cube. With each act our
audience discovers another twist, another turn, another solve in the vivid history of the
The little cube that could has gone on to inspire, entertain and in fact change the world
for the better. At forty years old the cube is really just getting started, it has a long
life ahead of it.
