An hilarious self-improvement seminar that takes you literally into another world, Radix Theatre’s two-time Jessie Richardson Award-winning Assembly confronts the desire for unity in an increasingly divided world, sharing the secret to becoming whole as things gradually fall apart.

Four seminar leaders intermingle with their spectators, asking peculiar questions and receiving surprisingly honest answers: “Who here prays?” “Who here lies?” Bizarre breakout sessions offer equal parts tongue-in-cheek parody and absurdist drama, as together we unlock our deepest desires and try to remember what human interaction is all about.

Radix Theatre will also be presenting its 2007 hit The Performance Art Trap at SWARM, the April 21 opening of BC Scene.
