“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 Part Three of A Thousand Ways: An Assembly, a timely and intimate return to togetherness. A Thousand Ways: An Assembly brings together an audience of 16 strangers to construct a unique and intimate theatrical event. Using a shared script, an evocative story of perseverance comes into focus, tracing how we consider one another individually and collectively after so much time apart.

A Thousand Ways: An Assembly is the final experience of the  600 Highwaymen’s triptych of encounters between strangers. Each installment of the series plumbs the essence of performance, bringing people together in the creation of a moving live experience. The work explores the line between strangeness and kinship, distance and proximity, and how the most intimate assembly can become profoundly radical.

You are welcome to participate in Part Three of A Thousand Ways, even if you missed Part One or Two.

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.
