Support Kidd Pivot's New Creation: Assembly Hall

About Assembly Hall

A group of medieval re-enactors have come together for an Annual General Meeting in their local community hall. As the Board of Directors, they oversee an event called “Quest Fest” that has fallen on hard times: membership is dwindling, debt is mounting, and the hall is falling apart. Unless something drastic happens, the Directors of this venerable order will be facing dissolution. As the meeting progresses, the line between real and re-enactment begins to blur, ancient forces are awoken, and it soon becomes clear that there is something much more at stake here than a mock-medieval tournament.

Created by Crystal Pite and Jonathon Young, from the team that brought you the ground-breaking, award-winning productions of Betroffenheit and Revisor, comes Kidd Pivot’s latest offering: a dance theatre hybrid that promises the company’s signature wit and invention. Fuelling Kidd Pivot’s work is a fascination with story and the role of language as an animating force.

In 2023, Kidd Pivot is embarking on a national tour of their latest creation, Assembly Hall, with plans to expand the tour further into the spring of 2024. This unique dance/theatre hybrid creation promises to be an unforgettable experience, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share it with audiences across Canada and the world.

Now, we turn to you, our supporters, to join us in bringing Assembly Hall to the greatest number of cities for audiences to experience. Your generous donation will help ensure the captivating narrative continues to shine on stage, and more audiences in Canada and around the world will have the opportunity to connect and belong through the magic of dance.
