From Ariela Rotenberg ’10:
The Assembly, a collective of interdisciplinary theater artists founded by four Wesleyan alums (Stephen Aubrey ’06, Edward Bauer ’08, Nick Benacerraf ’08, Jess Chayes ’07), is bringing HOME/SICK back home to Wesleyan University for the show’s New England premiere. Written collectively by the company, the piece chronicles the rise and fall of the Weather Underground, from its origins in the radical student movement in the 1960s to its failed attempts to violently overthrow the U.S. government in the 1970s. The show was a Critics’ Pick in both Backstage and The New York Times, which hailed The Assembly as “a cutting-edge young theater collective”.
You can view the trailer for HOME/SICK above.
HOME/SICK will play in the CFA Theater on January 30 and 31. Seating is strictly limited. Tickets can be purchased here.
While at Wesleyan, The Assembly will conduct a workshop on its unique collaborative methodology for creating devised work. The company will be joined by legendary Weatherman leader Mark Rudd, who will offer a talkback after the performance on Thursday, January 30th and a discussion with The Assembly and with current Wesleyan undergraduates on the afternoon of Friday, January 31.
