Assembly is a live, choreographic work devised by London-based artist Nicola Conibere for galleries, civic spaces and performance places. Exploring shifts in relation between individual and collective bodies, its configurations respond to the presence of spectators in an investigation of how other people can appear to us. Performed over three consecutive days, Assembly acknowledges each spectator’s unique presence without asking them to do more than watch.

Nicola Conibere is a London-based choreographer making work for theatres, art galleries and other places. Her work engages choreographic processes to explore the potentials of how bodies relate, investigating states of exchange between people, duration, place and other materials. She is particularly interested in the politics and potentials of spectatorship, and often investigates notions of theatricality, public appearing and social choreography in her work.
