The Fever, the latest work by 600 HIGHWAYMEN, tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility, and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?
600 HIGHWAYMEN is the moniker for theater artists Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone. They create innovative theatrical works which focus on the inherent poignancy and theatricality of people together.
