In this three-part interactive virtual performance lasting an entire year, Obie Award-winning theater-makers 600 Highwaymen respond to social distancing rules that "deliver us from isolation to congregation." In the first installment, A Phone Call (Sept 9-27), you'll glean a telling portrait of the performer on the other end of a mysterious phone call. (You can and should read Jasmyne Keimig and Chase Burns' experience of that installment here.) In the following, An Encounter (Nov 6-22), you and a stranger meet on opposite ends of a table, separated by a pane of glass. Using a script and props, you'll connect with the other person through simple gestures. Finally, in A Congregation (Summer 2021), you'll join a public "gathering" with everyone involved in the project’s journey, with whom you'll follow a shared score.
