BEGINNING NOV 4
We are thrilled to have New York City-based, Obie Award-winning 600 Highwaymen as a Company-in-Residence for our 20.21 season!
In a time when we're accustomed to division, when isolation is required, A Thousand Ways offers a chance to experience new ways of coming together. This quietly radical experiment is a three-part journey that takes place over several months, with each distinct installment presenting a new chance at making simple contact with a stranger. This is a path toward finding our way again. Something will be broken. Something will be built. 600 Highwaymen provides the instructions, the map, the recipe. All we need is you.

A THOUSAND WAYS (Part One): A Phone Call
Using a carefully crafted set of directives relayed over a simple phone call, you and another audience member - both strangers - take a journey together over the course of an hour.

Details of Parts Two and Three will be released in the coming months.

Audience Reactions:

"It was clever and innovative while being deeply thoughtful and personal. At a time when we are disconnected and isolated, the feeling of connection was profound."

"This was an amazing experience, I’m so glad I had the chance to participate. It felt like nothing else I’ve done--a truly unique and much needed, totally delightful connection."

"I was really impacted by the emotional journey I took. It is also one of the most enjoyable “virtual” theatre experiences I have had, not imitating theater, but a wholly new form in and of itself. It is a show I would "attend" multiple times."

“Simple but sublime…the show alerts us to the awesome strangeness, and the utter ordinariness, too, of being alive in the here and now.”

From one of the world's most acclaimed theatre companies, a performance in three parts about communication, distance, and reconnection

ABOUT 600 HIGHWAYMEN
Since 2009, 600 HIGHWAYMEN (Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone) have been making live art that, through a variety of radical approaches illuminate the inherent poignancy of people coming together. The work exists at the intersection of theater, dance, contemporary performance, and civic encounter. Though the processes are varied, each project revolves around the same curiosity: what occurs in the live encounter between people. 

600 HIGHWAYMEN has been called the “the standard-bearers of contemporary theater-making” by Le Monde, and “one of New York’s best nontraditional theater companies” by The New Yorker. They have received commissions from The Public Theater, Temple Contemporary, Salzburg Festival, and Festival Theaterformen. They are recipients of an Obie Award and Switzerland’s ZKB Patronize Prize, and nominees for Austria’s Nestroy Prize, the prestigious Alpert Award and NYC’s Bessie Award. In 2016, Browde and Silverstone were named artist fellows by the New York Foundation for the Arts.
