Watch Donmar’s ASSEMBLY online for a limited period

After its live debut on Saturday 20th March, the Donmar’s ASSEMBLY is now available online for a while through their YouTube channel.

Imagine the future. However you choose to imagine it. Now imagine it in your hands.
What does community mean in a time of division and separation?
Mixing live performance, animation and sound, ASSEMBLY looks at the impact of humans on nature and what we might build together for a better future. It’s about trying, failing, and trying again. In times of emergency, it is about hope.

Created by writer Nina Segal (In the Nighttime (Before the Sun Rises), Gate), director Joseph Hancock ((This Isn’t) A True Story, Almeida Young Company) and the Donmar Local Company, ASSEMBLY is a live digital performance created in collaboration with video designer and director of photography Andrzej Goulding (Teenage Dick, Donmar), set and costume designer Frankie Bradshaw (Sweat, Donmar and West End), composer and sound designer Max Pappenheim (The Way of the World, Donmar) and lighting designer Sam House (#HashtagLightie, Arcola). This is the first production from the Donmar Local Company – members of the community who live and work in the Donmar’s home boroughs of Camden and Westminster.

The running time is approximately one hour.
An audio introduction is available to listen to or download from the VocalEyes website and a captioned version will also be available.
ASSEMBLY is presented in line with all current Government guidelines.

The Donmar’s CORIOLANUS

This week in the National Theatre Live series, the offering is 2014’s CORIOLANUS filmed at the Donmar Warehouse. Tom Hiddleston (Betrayal, The Avengers, The Night Manager) plays the title role in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge.

When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. As famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field, Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.

Josie Rourke (Les Liaisons Dangereuses) directs the company including Mark Gatiss (The Madness of George III, League of Gentlemen), Hadley Fraser (Long Day’s Journey Into NightYoung Frankenstein), Alfred Enoch (TreeHarry Potter film series) and Deborah Findlay (Allelujah!Top Girls).

GUIDANCE: This recording had a BBFC rating 12A when released in cinema. Contains scenes featuring occasional gore and staged violence.

The running time is 3 hours with a very brief interval. It is subtitled.

Although this production is free to watch, please strongly consider making a donation to the National Theatre – or text NTATHOME 10 to 70085 to donate £10 – to enable it to keep its doors open after this crisis has passed.
