In SEAGULLMACHINE, an ensemble takes refuge in an abandoned theater, caught in the struggle between action and distraction. Smashing together two iconic riffs on the Hamlet story – Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull and Heiner Muller’s Hamletmachine – The Assembly excavates the legacy of twentieth-century drama to ask: What’s the good of making theater anyway?
