Attend a Performance Over a Phone Call

In these pandemic times, the idea of attending a performance often feels rather remote. But what if that performance took place in the form of a phone call, where you spoke to a stranger for an hour? That is the basic premise of a performance happening as part of the Singapore International Festival of Arts, with a show called “A Thousand Ways - Part 1: A Phone Call”, by American theatre company 600 Highwaymen. To learn more, we speak to the duo behind the show, Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone, about the show and reimagining the idea of performance for the times we are in.
