Political polarization has reached a boiling point and is putting increasing pressure on the practice of democracy. Playwright Annabel Soutar teams up with actors Alex Ivanovici and Brett Watson to create a thrilling theatrical response to the rise of extremism and tribalism in political discourse today. The Assembly/L’Assemblée invites the left and the right to face each other in a live setting and to attempt to transcend their ideological labels through listening. This long-term documentary theatre project will create new and specific content for each touring city and include both French and English episodes.
The presentation at Münchner Kammerspiele, will be the first German-language edition.
The project is part of the culture program related to Canada’s Guest of Honour presentation at the Frankfurt Book Fair and is supported by Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada with additional support from the Quebec Government.
