A THOUSAND WAYS (Part Three): An Assembly

A THOUSAND WAYS (PART THREE): AN ASSEMBLY

The New York Public Library, Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (7th Floor), at 455 Fifth Avenue
January 4-22 Run Time: 70 Minutes

A THOUSAND WAYS (PART THREE): AN ASSEMBLY
By 600 HIGHWAYMEN
Written and Created by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone

Obie Award-winning 600 HIGHWAYMEN present A THOUSAND WAYS (PART THREE): AN ASSEMBLY. The final experience of their triptych of encounters between strangers is an intimate reckoning—of how small we are in the face of awesome natural forces, and of our mutual dependence. AN ASSEMBLY tasks an audience of 16 strangers to reconstruct an evocative story of perseverance and ruin. This unique theatrical event tests the ways we arrange ourselves after so much time apart.

A THOUSAND WAYS is a triptych of performances that explore the line between strangeness and kinship, distance and proximity, and how the most intimate assembly can become profoundly radical.

Please note: You do not need to have attended A THOUSAND WAYS Parts One or Two to attend Part Three.

An almost surreal blending of performance and reality

- The Seattle Times
THE SINGLE MOST REMARKABLE WORK OF 2022

- Culturebot
The term “experimental” tends to signal an ambition to flaunt difficulty and occlude meaning, but 600 Highwaymen’s experiments with theatrical form are distinctly generous. That is the case with A Thousand Ways, which takes a simple premise and turns it into magic.

Startling and powerful
