“ONE OF NEW YORK’S BEST NONTRADITIONAL COMPANIES” – THE NEW YORKER
About Manmade EarthBefore streets, there was dirt; before dirt, there was rock; and before rock, there was all of us, standing together on a horizon. In MANMADE EARTH, a new work by 600 HIGHWAYMEN, eight teenagers unpeel the layers of a time long ago in order to discover the future. Through these eight young performers, we see a portrait of who we are today: shell-shocked and searching, aching to change but not sure how. This is a time of possibility. How deep must we dig to discover a new horizon?
