The Fever, the latest work by 600 HIGHWAYMEN, tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility, and our willingness to be there for one another. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines how we assemble, organize and care for the bodies around us. Who will you be when our eyes are on you? What will we see when we all look your way?
“a lovely, haunting meditation on human connection, and disconnection … a poetic evocation of our mostly unspoken — and un-called-upon — dependence on one another.”
