The Assembly
Co-directed by Jess Chayes & Nick Benacerraf

In SEAGULLMACHINE, an ensemble takes refuge in an abandoned theater, caught in the struggle between action and distraction. Smashing together two iconic riffs on the Hamlet story – Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull and Heiner Muller’s Hamletmachine – The Assembly excavates the legacy of twentieth-century drama to ask: What’s the good of making theater anyway?

The Assembly is a collective of multi-disciplinary performance artists committed to realizing a visceral and intelligent theater for a new generation. The company has created nine original works including HOME/SICK (NY Times Critics’ Pick), I WILL LOOK FORWARD TO THIS LATER and THAT POOR DREAM, performed at venues across New York, and toured to Los Angeles, Wesleyan University, the Edinburgh Fringe (Fringe First nomination), and the Philly Fringe.

Running time: Two-hours and forty minutes (with one intermission).

You can see this show for only $10 with a La MaMa ETC Membership.
