  community member   < less A Thousand Ways (Part One): A Phone Call

On a simple phone call, you and another audience member - nameless strangers to one another - follow a carefully crafted set of directives. Throughout the journey, a portrait of each other emerges through fleeting moments of exposure and the simple sound of an unseen voice.
This presentation runs each evening from November 9 - 14, 2021, at various times. This experience is conducted entirely over the participant's phone.
Tickets are $10 for general audiences and $5 for students. Each part is a self-contained, complete artistic experience. It is not essential to do both parts or to participate in Part One before Part Two to enjoy the shows.
A Thousand Ways is a three-part performance in which you are the actor and you are the audience. Your words, actions, gestures, silence, thoughts, and willingness are the tools. You need no training. You are the expert. This presentation follows this past summer's successful July run.
Obie Award-winning theatermakers, 600 HIGHWAYMEN, know

The questions start out silly ("Name the yellow-colored items around you") and grow progressively more intimate ("What's a detail you think someone wouldn't notice in a person they admired") with the aim of encouraging storytelling, triggering imagination, and nurturing empathy. After an hour of connecting, or not, the phone call finishes in the same fashion as the beginning: with an instruction to hang up. Suitable for ages 16 & up.
