Open: 10/19/14- Close: 10/19/14 Any Size Mirror is a Dictator
Any Size Mirror is a Dictator is 156 hours of new music and text entwined with task-based choreography. Transposing ideation directly into performance as learning processes, decision-making procedures, and theory-to-form actualizations, Any Size Mirror is a Dictator is a structure about structures. The work is accompanied by a Book containing scores, systems, and notes.

The space is de-hierarchized; audiences are free to come and go and to roam the gallery over the course of each 6-hour performance. Two teams of performers work towards construction of each live performance. The first team, a “rehearsive” cast of performers, uses the opera Book, 41+ fragments and memorized choreographic tasks, text, and through-written music.

Open: 10/09/14- Close: 10/25/14 SECONDARY PITCH
There’s no ‘I’ in team. But there is in family. Stephen and Paul Dowd were two of the most highly touted prospects in baseball. Stephen lived up to the hype with an amazing career in the Big Leagues. His bother Paul...never got off the plate. Now, after retiring from the game with an injury, Stephen is divorced, broke, and forced to consider a lucrative offer to film a Reality TV show about his life. But the Producers don’t just want Stephen; they want Paul and their fame-seeking younger brother Kevin as well. Secondary Pitch is a biting new play about brothers, rivalry and staying on top of the game.

Matthew J. Nichols directs a cast of four, including Ryan Dusek, Larry Phillips, Phoebe Leonard, and Peter Buck Dettmann.

Open: 11/06/14- Close: 11/23/14 SNOW IN THE LIVING ROOM
In Snow in the Living Room, Orietta Crispino presents a visually striking and poetically sensual distillation of the classic Snow White fairy tale. Inert in her crystal coffin, Bianca finds that her liberation will never come from a redeemer outside herself; instead, she must acknowledge her own fractured soul and accept death as a facet of what it means to be fully human. Echoing the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Snow in the Living Room exists in the interstitial space between body and self. It is a dynamic story of fear and desire, told through splintered mirror images and complex soundscapes.

“I can’t escape my Shadow…”

Snow in the Living Room, written by Orietta Crispino as a poetic monodrama in Italian, has been adapted and translated into English by Marco Casazza.

A moving mosaic of what it means to be endowed with "Great Expectations,” That Poor Dream is set on a train traveling from New York City to Fairfield, CT, uniting worlds divided by geography, privilege, and time. Inspired by Charles Dickens’ classic novel about coming of age in a profoundly class-conscious society, the work draws on the company’s own complex relationship to class identity and economic disparity in American society. The Assembly's newest creation explores how class defines and divides us, and how our shared humanity might bring us closer together.

The Assembly (Stephen Aubrey, Edward Bauer, Ben Beckley, Nick Benacerraf, Jess Chayes, Emily Louise Perkins, and Alyssa Simmons) will present the World Premiere of That Poor Dream, a new play written and devised collectively by the company and
