600 HIGHWAYMEN | Part of the 2019 RESPONSE: Performance Series
Manmade Earth features eight teenagers living in Buffalo from across the globe. Having workshopped the piece from scratch for the 2018 Response Festival, 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s work returns in its final iteration following a NYC premiere.
Manmade Earth is at the intersection of performance and installation, continuing 600 HWM’s singular trajectory of making work both for and by community. In this piece, an ever-shifting landscape of objects and materials are manipulated by the performers, examining 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 23-24, 29-December 1 2019
Venue: AMLDC 612 Fillmore Ave. Buffalo, NY 14212
