In this multimedia comedy show, Julio Torres guides a camera through his favorite shapes, which include a plexi-glass square, a triangle, a sphere, a self-conscious Faberge egg and a Ferrero Rocher chocolate that reminds him of Melania Trump. The audience sees a projection of Julio's hands holding various precious little objects that serve as a jumping point for fantastical stories, anecdotes and jokes.
