Under Construction Series: 600 Highwaymen

The Fever

600 Highwaymen begin with the infamous Rite of Spring as inspiration for their new theater piece, The Fever.  Involving a large group of people, the work explores human beings inside systems of organization – who we are together and who we are alone.

Obie Award-winning company 600 Highwaymen construct theater pieces that illuminate the inherent poignancy and theatricality of people together.  Formed in 2009 by directors Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone and based in Brooklyn, NY, 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s performances have been awarded distinctions by The New Yorker, New York Times, Village Voice, Flavorpill, and Time Out New York. Productions include The Record (Invisible Dog Arts Center, Under The Radar/The Public Theater; Noorderzon Festival, The Netherlands; Parc de la Villette and Centre Pompidou, Paris; Theaterformen, Germany),  Employee of the Year (Mt. Tremper Arts; Crossing the Line; upcoming: Wexner Center for the Arts, International Festival of Arts and Ideas, New Haven; Theaterformen, Germany; Noorderzon Festival, The Netherlands), This Time Tomorrow (“Best Of”; L Magazine), This Great Country (Fusebox Festival and River to River), Empire City (Editors Pick: Village Voice, Time Out New York), Everyone Was Chanting Your Name (Abrons Arts Center). Browde and Silverstone have received fellowships and residencies from the Drama League, Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab,  Theater Masters, New York State maximum-security prisons, A.R.T./NY, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and numerous colleges and universities.
