“Simple but sublime…the show alerts us to the awesome strangeness, and the utter ordinariness, too, of being alive in the here and now.”–The New York Times
Obie Award-winning experimental theater duo 600 Highwaymen present A Thousand Ways (Part Three): An Assembly, a timely and intimate return to togetherness. This interactive theatrical experience invites an audience of 16 participants to create a private performance from a shared script. Blurring the lines between spectator and participant, An Assembly explores how the most intimate gathering can become a profoundly radical encounter.
Participation is suitable for audience members 12 years and older.
This production was commissioned by The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi, Stanford Live at Stanford University, The Public Theater, and Festival Theaterformen. Part Three: An Assembly was developed through a residency partnership with the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, and was originally commissioned and co-conceived by Temple Contemporary at Temple University, with support for the production provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Philadelphia.
