MANMADE EARTH by 600 HIGHWAYMEN

MANMADE EARTH

MANMADE EARTH by 600 HIGHWAYMEN

MANMADE EARTH by 600 HIGHWAYMEN opens Season Eleven at The Invisible Dog in Cobble Hill on Friday, September 13, 2019, with additional performances through Sunday, September 15.

In Manmade Earth, eight teenagers from the Congo, Egypt, Malaysia, Somalia, Syria, Tanzania, and the United States-each with a unique path into this country-come together to create a new landscape on stage. With an abundance of materials, including cardboard, rope, buckets, and wood, Manmade Earth binds the audience and performers in an experiment of communal construction.

An investigation of permanence, stability, guts, and endurance, this new work from 600 HIGHWAYMEN asks what can we build from here and where will we go next?

About 600 HIGHWAYMEN

600 HIGHWAYMEN, under the direction of Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone, makes performances that offer a new way of seeing for today. They explore a radical approach to making live art, constructing events that create intimacy among a group of strangers. Developed using creative methods ranging from the mainstream to the peculiar, their work is a rigorously tuned investigation of presence and humanity, not only in performance, but in process and aftermath. Since 2009 their performances have included The Fever, Employee of the Year, The Record, This Great Country, Everyone Was Chanting Your Name, Empire City, and This Time Tomorrow. 600 HIGHWAYMEN received an Obie Award in 2014, Zurich’s ZKB Patronage Prize in 2015, and a Bessie Nomination for Outstanding Production of 2015. In 2016, Browde and Silverstone were named artist fellows by the New York Foundation for the Arts.
