The construction site is a place of materiality and transformation. It moves between what was, what is and what will be. Often perceived as an obstruction and a nuisance in our everyday lives, it simultaneously holds utopian potential: the idea of hopeful change and the creation of new spaces.
In the circus and construction performance UNMEASUREMENT Road Maintenance Series, five performers explore the transitional spaces between hope and nightmare, between archaeology and civil engineering, idealising rendering construction signs and building rubble, with the necessary pinch of irony and their bodies as a yardstick.
Building and measuring are on display. To the sounds of concrete mixers and welding equipment, Plus Ou Moins Cirques Productions briefly raptures our gaze and sharpens it for an aesthetics of the construction site.
