Homo Novus / A THOUSAND WAYS. Part II: An Encounter
Only in Latvian.
A THOUSAND WAYS. Part II: An Encounter is a 1:1 performance where two people at an epidemiologically safe distance.
A project for strangers in which you are the actor and you are the audience.
You and a stranger meet at opposite ends of a table, separated by a pane of glass. Using a script and a few simple objects, a simple exercise of working together becomes an experience of profound connection with another person.
A performance about communion, distance, and reconnection from one of the world’s most acclaimed nontraditional theater companies. Guided by a score of instructions, questions, prompts, and physical directives, people who have never met build a series of performances for one another.
A Thousand Ways explores the line between strangeness and kinship, distance and proximity, and how the most intimate assembly can become profoundly radical.
