“You must see Boston built again / Just as it was before—perhaps, though, faster.”

On March 16, 2013, VU University Amsterdam and Martian Prince successfully staged Kenneth Koch's 1962 The Construction of Boston, having brought the epic art play featuring Robert Rauschenberg, Jean Tinguely, and Niki de Saint Phalle to Amsterdam for the first time. Ratna Marapin, Jill Top and Remy L. Overkempe presented this Overkempe-directed play.
