About the performance
Baker, psychic, plumber, mayor, bell-ringer. Invisible, overlooked, broken, transcendent. Community of the city and city of community. They have gathered to judge the history. History that has broken their dreams, desires, passions. Started to reign over their time. Set the rules of the game. Spread the power. Built a claustrophobic community, full of unspoken secrets. All they are left with are memories. Painful, transient, playful, blazing, loving. Past is foggy, present is slipping through their fingers, future does not exist. Everyone is waiting for a change that never comes.
Who is building a community? Who does the territory of the city belongs to? Who controls the time? How is power distributed in the society? How to put down roots, when the world is in constant becoming? How can you build the territory of possible? And where can you find a space to be playful, when spontaneity is forbidden?
Every destruction is also a creation of something new. First non-institutional project by Počemučka. Statement of some generation about some community, some time, some city, some ideas and some anti-generation. Anti-idea. "As long as we play." Under Construction.
"As a generational statement, we recognise in the performance Under Construction the desire to rebuild the tower – just like the creators from the počemučka collective, the characters are yearning for a space of their own generation, they are searching for and creating their own space for acting."
