600 HIGHWAYMEN: The Fever
  • The latest work by 600 HIGHWAYMEN, The Fever tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility. Created for an intimate viewership of 75 people, writers and directors Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone -- named artist fellows by New York Foundation for the Arts in 2016 --- take turns as narrator, describing an unremarkable party hosted by a woman named Marianne in an unnamed town. As time passes, the performers slowly call on volunteers to catch someone falling slowly, rearrange an arm, or help a person get up. The Fever, which premiered in 2017 at the Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival, is Browde and Silverstone’s most evocative study about the sympathetic feeling between strangers and how, uncalled-upon, we are dependent on one another.
