Porte Parole’s The Assembly – FREE TICKETS NOV 14TH!

November 14, 2018 @ 12:00 PM - 2:30 PM

- FREE (reserve tickets at info[at]porteparole.org)

The Assembly is an attempt to put the broken and polarized pieces of 21st century political discourse back together again in the theatre. This bilingual serialized documentary theatre project started in April 2016 when Porte Parole Artistic Director Annabel Soutar commissioned actors Alex Ivanovici and Brett Watson to interview Americans who supported Donald Trump during the US presidential primaries. Since then, it has evolved to become a broader examination of the ideological dugouts where so-called liberals and conservatives huddle in isolation and become less able to speak rationally together about politics.

To create The Assembly, Porte Parole has been organizing encounters wherein four individuals of wildly different political leanings collectively confront the issues that most divide them. This documentary play invites the left and the right to face each other and attempt to transcend their ideological labels through listening. Each performance invites audience members to join the stage and participate in a long table where they can engage in difficult conversations about current events that affect their communities.
