Theatre Direct originally commissioned The Assembly in November 2021. The company supported us throughout the first period of creation and development, focusing on the Theatre for Young Audiences version. Theatre Direct also provided us with a performance opportunity for the TYA version, at the Forward March Festival 2022. The company continues to support The Assembly as it develops.
Eastern Front Theatre commissioned the adult version of The Assembly in February 2022, with the goal of presenting the show as part of their MACRO Digitals Festival. The company provided us with a team of designers to develop the visual and tech aspects of the experience. The company continues to support The Assembly as it develops.
Funding from the Ontario Arts Council subsidized the research and development of the Theatre for Young Audiences version of The Assembly.
