A Thousand Ways: Part 1 - 600 HIGHWAYMEN

Performance

WHEN October 7-18, 2020
8pm WHERE Via interactive phone call Part of "Off the Stage Events" WHO The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Open to the Public

An enthralling, imaginative, and profound social experience from one of the world’s most acclaimed theater companies.

A Thousand Ways delivers us from isolation to congregation. With just two people via a phone call, a new type of theater emerges. One in which the most intimate assembly can be profoundly radical. Everything we need is already here, just you and me.

Designed around physical distancing guidelines, Part 1 is the first in the three-part series that makes up A Thousand Ways. You pick up the phone. Someone is on the line. You don’t know their name, and you still won’t when the hour is over. Yet, a portrait of your partner will emerge through fleeting moments of interaction. You will work together, guided by recorded instructions that transform social interaction into an unexpected journey.

In the future, Parts 2 and 3 of A Thousand Ways will also be presented at The Arts Center. The pieces have been created to work collectively or independently. You can attend only one or be a part of any two, or all three.

Additional 3pm shows on Fridays and Saturdays
