The Fever
OBERON Presents
November 15 - 19, 2017
The Fever
“A LOVELY, HAUNTING MEDITATION ON HUMAN CONNECTION, AND DISCONNECTION…A POETIC EVOCATION OF OUR MOSTLY UNSPOKEN — AND UN-CALLED-UPON — DEPENDENCE ON ONE ANOTHER.”
The New York Times
“BOLD AND DARING … A RITUAL THAT TAPS THE SACRED AND THE PROFANE, THE ESSENCE OF HUMAN EXISTENCE.”
Exeunt Magazine

Written and Directed by Abigail Browde & Michael Silverstone
Created in collaboration with Brandon Wolcott, Emil Abramyan, Eric Southern


New York-based theater company 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?

This oddly compelling piece plays more like a social experiment in unforced compliance than theater, but it works in a way that never feels forced or hokey. More

Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone have created performances together under the name 600 HIGHWAYMEN since 2009. More
