Programmed and produced renowned performance company 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s “This Great Country“, a re-imagining of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman in an abandoned storefront in the South Street Seaport. Critically acclaimed for its radical casting and staging, this presentation put 600 Highwaymen on the map for the first time and they haven’t stopped since.
Under the name 600 HIGHWAYMEN, Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone construct expansive performances that illuminate the inherent poignancy and theatricality of people together. They are exploring 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.
