Under Construction is a contemporary dance performance about incompleteness. It’s a stage work about that moment when nothing has been decided and all options are still open. The dawning of realization, when all things are unfinished and in progress.
The performers are Finnish novelist Maria Peura and dancer Vera Tegelman. All the written material on stage is created during the performance.
