Manmade Earth by 600 Highwaymen

Part of the 2018 Response Performance Festival, Manmade Earth is at the intersection of performance and installation. A guided performance that is created by the attending audience, this piece continues 600 Highwaymen’s singular trajectory of making work both for and by community. Manmade Earth examines the evolution of our society; how we come together to create what we could not on our own. Buildings get built, destroyed, built again. How do the structures that we make push us together or keep us apart?

Dates: November 16-18 (Sat. – 2pm, Fri./Sat./Sun. – 7:30pm)
Location: AMLDC 612 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo, NY 14212
Tickets: $25 (early bird special $20)  |  BUY TICKETS

Upcoming Performances

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie
Written by John Cassavetes | Directed by Dan Shanahan

As the title suggests, Bookie takes place in the gritty city underbelly where gambling and a burlesque club occupy the mind and time of leading character Cosmo Vittelli. When he finds himself over $20,000 in the hole, Cosmo must navigate the still seedier criminal world while maintaining the chummy disposition of a host of a house of pleasure. Original Stage Adaptation by Torn Space Theater.

Dates: February 15-March 10, 2019
Venue: 612 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo, NY 14212
Tickets: $25 General / $20 Student


The Illusion and the Aftermath
Temporary Distortion | Part of the 2019 Response Festival

This performance by Temporary Distortion unfolds slowly over the course of six-hours for a meditating audience. Meditation cushions and headphones are provided for the audience to come and go as they wish, staying for only as long as they would like. For someone in the room without headphones, the performance is virtually silent.

Dates: June 7-9, 2019
Venue: AMLDC 612 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo, NY 14212
Tickets: $25


Site Specific Production – TBA
Torn Space Theater | Part of the 2019 Response Festival

Torn Space returns to Silo City with its seventh original site-specific spectacle. This sprawling production will combine projection, lighting, sound, sculpture and live performance to create an unforgettable immersive theatrical experience amid Buffalo’s signature industrial monuments. Combining the artifacts and ideologies of our collective experience, Torn Space builds on the legacy of its site-specific work, curating a parallel silo-dwelling community that welcomes audiences to observe and participate in its own unique culture, practices, and rituals.

Dates: August 9-18, 2019
Venue: Silo City – 105 Silo City Row Buffalo, NY 14203
Tickets: $25


Custodians of Beauty
Palissimo Company | Part of the 2019 Response Festival

WNY Premiere by award-winning Palissimo Company. Custodians of Beauty forges towards abstraction, minimalism, and restrained expressive modes while amplifying potency of an image; human body as sculpture, emotional trigger, or a political symbol. In an age when humanity, disenchanted with itself, seems to have rejected the necessity of beauty, Custodians of Beauty asks us to look again, beyond the surface, to see differently.

Dates: September 20-22, 2019
Venue: Silo City – 105 Silo City Row Buffalo, NY 14203
Tickets: $25
