Dr'm't'c C'nstr'ct'ns exploits the pronounced tunnel-like quality of its site: a construction canopy at a building site, a long, narrow conduit of crisscrossing humanity by day, an empty shell of human traces at night. The long sides of the canopy face off through language: on one side, a series of sentences could be describing the individuals passing through; on the other, a vocalist and director construct melodramatic responses to an unnamed narrative. The texts are linked by bursts of operatic music, the sanctioned icons of joy and sorrow, and they coalesce, contrast, or dissolve in miniature scenes or atomized images.
