Assembly is a piece of dance and music that uses the assembly line as a choreographic focus. But instead of producing goods for sale, the dancers are put on the line. Here they are displayed, examined, deconstructed, reconstructed and reassembled, piece-by-piece. What do you look at when you look at a person? Can we separate the details from the whole? Which are the details, specificities, individual qualities that make a person?
