600 Highwaymen: A Thousand Ways
December 2, 2020
Guided by a score of instructions, questions, prompts, and physical directives, people who have never met build a series of performances for one another. Each installment of 600 Highwaymen’s A Thousand Ways explores the line between strangeness and kinship, distance and proximity, and how the most intimate assembly can become profoundly radical.
- Act One: A Phone Call. (Dec 2–6, approx. 1 hour long)
- Act Two: A Meeting. Face-to-Face. (February 2021, subject to change)
- Act Three: An Assembly. All of Us Together. (Spring or Fall 2021)
A Thousand Ways is a story about making contact and showing up—and about judgement, distance, acceptance, and impatience. Learn more below.
More About Act One
Dec 2–6, 2020 • Timeslots available at time of purchase
On a simple phone call, you and another audience member—nameless strangers to one another—follow a carefully crafted set of directives. Over the course of the phone call, a portrait of each other emerges through fleeting moments of exposure and the simple sound of an unseen voice. Please note that if you purchase two tickets in your order, you will not be paired together for Act One.
Acts Two and ThreeFeb 2021 through Fall 2021 • Schedule to be announced
Act Two will be an in-person encounter with a new stranger, separated by plexiglass and guided by 600 Highwaymen. Act Three will see all participants involved in the experience coming together. Both acts will take place in person at one of our venues on the Stanford University campus.
