A highly anticipated new work by acclaimed choreographer Crystal Pite, following the massive success of Revisor and Betroffenheit. A brilliantly orchestrated, highly energetic and inventive hybrid of dance and theatre.

Hailed by the British newspaper The Guardian as “a 21st-century dance genius,” Crystal Pite is one of Canada’s most prominent choreographers. Assembly Hall, her new co-creation with playwright Jonathon Young for the eight wonderful performers of Kidd Pivot, springs from the fascination with story and the role of language as an animating force that fuels the company’s creative process. A group of medieval re-enactors have gathered in the local community hall for their annual general meeting. The event they are organizing has fallen on hard times, and unless something drastic happens, this venerable order will be facing dissolution. As the meeting progresses, the line between reality and re-enactment begins to blur, ancient forces are awoken, and it soon becomes clear that there is much more at stake than a mock medieval tournament. A breathtaking work, moving and inspiring.
