Performance | Audience Participation Theater Experience


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.

Play | Mothermotherland: A Melding of American and Ukrainian Experiences


Mothermotherland is a devised performance that explores motherhood, motherland, and Ukrainian and American experience through the lens of Mykola Khyvylovy’s autobiographical short story “I Am (a Romantic)”. Written in 1924, the short story follows I, the head of the secret police (the Cheka), who must decide, with the help of his comrades: Dr. Tahabat, Andrusha, and the degenerate Sentinel, whether or not to execute his own mother to protect his idea of a commune beyond the hills. This performance was developed through a co-writing process by members of Slovo. Theater Group. The performance was devised in the styles of Les Kurbas (theatre of movement and gestus), Jacques Lecoq (physical theatre), and post-documentary theatre. In this piece, there are multiple realities existing and overlapping with one another; there are the actors and their personal experiences, the actors playing themselves and their personal stories, there are the characters of “I am (a Romantic)”, and there is Mykola Khyvylovy.
