    An unique, unexpected encounter with a stranger

    Please note, this experience is for native Dutch speakers only!

    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 both follow a thread of questions, instructions and clues by an unknown voice – a portrait of your partner will emerge through fleeting moments of exposure. Will you take this challenge?

    In our SPRING@home programme we present part one of A Thousand Ways, an enthralling, imaginative and social experiment that delivers you from isolation to congregation, strangeness and kinship. This encounter is designed around social distancing rules to meet participants where they are and when they are.

    A Thousand Ways is presented in cooperation with Noorderzon. SPRING presents part one of this series, Noorderzon Part Two: An Encounter this summer. We highly recommend you to participate in part two. Each part will give you the opportunity to experience a new encounter with a stranger.

    Since 2009, 600 HIGHWAYMEN (Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone) have been making live art that exists at the intersection of theater, dance, contemporary performance, and civic encounter. Though the processes are varied, each project revolves around the same curiosity: what occurs in the live encounter between people. 600 HIGHWAYMEN has been called the “the standard-bearers of contemporary theater-making” by Le Monde, and “one of New York’s best nontraditional theater companies” by The New Yorker. They have received many international awards and commissions in Europe as well as the US.
