600 HIGHWAYMEN

A THOUSAND WAYS (Part One): A Phone Call

This is a past event which has now ended.

A Thousand Ways is an enthralling, imaginative, and profound social experience that delivers us from isolation to congregation. Part One: A Phone Call Pick up the phone. Someone is on the line. You don’t know their name, and you still won’t when the hour is over, but through this exchange – as you follow a thread of automated prompts – a portrait of your partner will emerge through fleeting moments of exposure. This is an invitation. Will you attend?

A Thousand Ways is a quietly radical response to this new world from Obie Award-winning theatremakers, 600 HIGHWAYMEN, known for exhilarating performances that challenge the very definition of theatre.

 

“Never before have I felt so closely intimate to a person just through the sound of their voice.”  Audience Member

“Just when you thought you might be getting a little cynical about the theater…think about 600 HIGHWAYMEN.”  The New Yorker

“The standard-bearers of contemporary theater-making” Le Monde

“Simple but sublime…the show alerts us to the awesome strangeness, and the utter ordinariness, too, of being alive in the here and now.” The New York Times

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
