Performance | Audience Participation Theater


Guided by questions and prompts, audience members create a shared script together in A Thousand Ways, an entirely participatory theater experience. Obie Award-winning performance troupe 600 Highwaymen present A Thousand Ways (Part Three): An Assembly. The final experience of their triptych of encounters between strangers is an intimate reckoning -- of how small we are in the face of awesome natural forces, and of our mutual dependence. An Assembly tasks an audience of 16 strangers to reconstruct an evocative story of perseverance and ruin. This unique theatrical event tests the ways we arrange ourselves after so much time apart. This experience will be discovered and enacted by audience members in collaboration with each other. The instructions for the performance are written on notecards, and audience members read what is written on them. Written & Created by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone 600 Highwaymen (Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone), are "standard bearers of contemporary theater-making" (Le Monde), who have "quietly been shaking up American theatre since 2009" (The Guardian). They are recipients of Switzerland's ZKB Patronize Prize, and their work has been nominated for two Bessie Awards, a Drama League Award, and Austria's Nestroy Prize. In 2016, Abigail and Michael were named artist fellows by the New York Foundation for the Arts and are currently Associate Artists of IN SITU, the European platform for artistic creation in public space.

Lecture | Formgiving: Giving Form to the Future


Formgiving, the Danish word for design, means to give form to that which has not yet been given form: create a world to the world we would like to find ourselves. This concept is now more important than ever, as humans are the greatest force shaping the planet today. To feel that we have license to imagine a future different from today we need only look back in time to realize how radically different things once were. The same happens if we look forward with the same clear foresight. Since we know our future is bound to be different from our present, we have the power to give it form. Formgiving takes you on a journey across scales from the smallest to the largest projects to sense how the world around us has been shaped, from the past to the present and beyond. Speaker Kai-Uwe Bergmann is a partner at BIG with global work and heads business development in over 40 different countries. BIG, based in Copenhagen, New York, London, Barcelona, and Shenzhen, is a group of architects, designers, and more.
