MAKING OUR IDEAL AMERICA: Conversations on Coalition-Building

March 23, 2017 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
505 1/2 Waverly Ave



In the wake of the 2016 election, The Assembly's hit show returns to NYC! Shows run March 9th-25th. Post-show conversation with NYCCGC's Aziz Dehkan on March 23rd.

During the late ‘60s, disgusted by the Vietnam War and rampant inequality at home, a handful of radicals seized control of the U.S. student movement and reshaped it in the name of violently overthrowing the United States' government. Based on real events, HOME/SICK explores the Weather Underground's inspiration and idealism, infighting and ultimate disintegration, in a passionate examination of collective action.

The Assembly is dedicated to building community and fostering conversation with each of our works. In addition to recounting the troubled tale of the 1960s student movement, we are excited to embark on an in-depth conversation series focused on tools for coalition-building in today’s world. We invite audiences to join us at JACK, one of New York’s most diverse and inclusive performance spaces, to take a new look at America’s bygone revolutionaries and to listen to the current leaders of our own urgent moment

The discussions will run approximately 20 minutes and take place immediately following performances of HOME/SICK.
