Ann Arbor Summer Festival (A2SF) and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) Present:
A Thousand Ways (Part One): A Phone Call

July 13-18 at various times and tickets are $10 and $5 for students with the code STUDENTATW, which can be entered on the payment page.

A Thousand Ways is a three-part performance in which you are the actor and you are the audience. Your words, actions, gestures, silence, thoughts, and willingness are the tools. You need no training. You are the expert.

Obie Award-winning theatermakers, 600 HIGHWAYMEN, known for exhilarating performances that challenge the very definition of theater, have created a quietly radical response to this new world with A Thousand Ways. It is a chance at being heard, a brave moment to show up.

This is an invitation. Will you attend?

Part One: A Phone Call – On a simple phone call, you and another audience member – nameless strangers to one another – follow a carefully crafted set of directives. Over the course of the journey, a portrait of each other emerges through fleeting moments of exposure and the simple sound of an unseen voice.
