One of the most intriguing contemporary international theatre in its Israeli debut, 600 Highwaymen presents “A Thousand Ways” – a triptych of encounters between strangers.
In “A Thousand Ways” there are no performers. There is only you – in the role of the audience, the performers, and the generators of the action. A uniquely intimate experience that summons a deep encounter with yourself and with others. 

Part Two: An Encounter
There’s a desk on a stage. You sit down across from a stranger. Apart from the two of you, there is no one else on stage or in the entire theatre hall. You look at each other. Your eyes meet. Between you, there is a stack of index cards, each with an instruction or a simple request. Let the cards lead you. They offer new ways to look at one another. They invite you to revisit, in real time, what you think you know about the person standing before you, and about yourself. 

“A work of inquisitive humanity and profound gentleness” – The New York Times
“Truly adventurous, assumption-busting thinking about what theater is and what it can be.” – the San Francisco Chronicle
“Just when you think you might be getting a little cynical about the theater … think about 600 HIGHWAYMEN.” – The New Yorker

*The encounter is approximately one hour long.
*One ticket can be purchased at any time.
*The three parts take place on different dates. You can purchase tickets for all three or for each individual part.
