Thanks, Noorderzon Festival, for a great time as always. A little Dutch press that we appreciated: “The realization of the power of the performance just passed on to me later. Did I really make a dance with 59 strangers? So yes. That says something about The Fever here and now , in which there is no room for cynicism or distantness.” (Read the full piece here).

Onward with The Fever tour! Next stop, Zurich!

August 11, 2017

Opening night of Kasimir & Karoline at the Salzburg Festival. Here’s some local TV coverage about the show (in german!) and a radio piece as well (also german!)

June 13, <br/>2017

Thank you Sibiu, Romania. We had two sold-out performances of The Fever in the ancient and incredible Fortress Cisnădioara (photo by Marchánt Davis!) as a part of FITS 2017. This is a venue we won’t likely forget any time soon. Now we’re heading to see our old friends at Festival Theaterformen in Hannover, Germany. We’ve got a long list of tour dates ahead of us (and more to be announced soon).

May 1, <br/>2017

We’re very excited to announce the first leg of international touring of The Fever. Perhaps we’re coming to a city near you? Check the calendar for details. And follow us on facebook or twitter for more updates. More dates are to be announced shortly.

Perhaps our favorite piece of press: rehearsal diary entries from Isadora, one of the performers of the Bristol/In Between Time production of The Record.

January 15, 2017

Thank you, Under the Radar, for being our home. Final performances of The Fever today (sold out, but waitlist works).

August 25, 2016

After a busy summer working on The Fever (thank you St. Ann’s Church, The Public Theater, and Mount Tremper Arts!) we’re on our way down-under to make The Record with the fine folks at OzAsia Festival. G’day.

July 10, 2016

Thank you NYFA for naming Abby & Michael 2016 Fellows in Choreography. We’re honored to be included in such an esteemed group of artists.

May 1, <br/> 2016

We just finished a three-week residency at the amazing On the Boards in Seattle to work on THE FEVER (coming in 2017). Followed by the final (for now) presentation of EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR. Here’s a great piece about us from Seattle’s City Pages. Thank you, OtB, for being such perfect hosts. Sorry about the squirrel.

January 8, 2016

Though our run of Employee of the Year at Under the Radar is almost sold out (!), many people are getting in off the waitlist. Please don’t be discouraged from coming early to try to get tickets. See you there!

December 10, 2015

After several months of performing out of town, we’re happy to be gearing up to bring Employee of Year home to the Under the Radar Festival. See the festival website for tickets & info.

August 30, 2015

Happy to be home after a fantastic series of performances of Employee of the Year at the Noorderzon Festival and Zürcher Theaterspektakel, where we were the proud recipients of the 2015 ZKB Patronage Prize. The show continues with several domestic engagements: check our calendar pages and come see us! (photo by company manager Lilleth Glimcher).

July 15, 2015

Employee of the Year is nominated for a 2015 Bessie Award for Outstanding Production. We are thrilled, floored, humbled, grateful. See you at the awards ceremony at The Apollo Theater on October 19th.

July 12, 2015

Just returned home from the Festival Theaterformen in Hannover, Germany. Never before have we performed two 600 HWM works side-by-side (or back-to-back?). All performances of The Record and Employee of the Year were sold out to fantastic audiences. Tchuss, Germany. Genau.

May 20, <br/>2015

600 HWM is featured in Jordan Tannahill‘s new publication “Theater of the Unimpressed”. Jordan came to see This Great Country and focuses on the 2013 NYC production in a section of his writing. 600 HWM’s involvement aside, we highly recommend this book. Jordan’s writing and thinking is striking and interesting.

March 30, 2015

Thanks to all of our new French friends who worked (onstage and off) to make THE RECORD in Paris a grand success. Merci!

January 30, 2015

Abby & Michael are featured in Eliza Bent’s piece in American Theatre magazine about couples who work together.

January 1, 2015

The Record is one of the NY Times’ “Stage Memories from 2014.” “The piece filled the stage with joyful human tableaus and, surprisingly, my eyes with tears.”

November 9, 2014

Casting performers in preparation for our upcoming residency at the Sundance Institute Theater Lab at MASS MoCA.

OCTOBER 20, 2014

Overjoyed with the sold-out success of Employee of the Year. Stella, Violet, Alice, Candela, and Rachel really knocked it out of the park.  If you missed it, here’s some thoughtful writing by New York Theater Review, or The New Yorker, or The New York Times.

August 30, 2014

49 performers + 6 new yorkers + 3 sold-out shows = The Record at the Noorderzon Festival. Here’s us on the news.

August 7, 2014

After showing Employee of the Year to sold-out audiences at the glorious Mount Tremper Arts, 600 HWM has landed in the Netherlands for The Record rehearsals. Dank ye well.

June 20, 2014

Click here to watch a little local Netherlands news coverage about the auditions for The Record for the Noorderzon Festival. Warning: lots of dutch.

June 14, <br/>2014

After a whirlwind trip to Groningen, The Record (version Noorderzon) is cast! And our Dutch has improved only marginally.

May 19, <br/>2014

We are so thrilled and honored to be the recipients of a 2014 Village Voice OBIE Award. Floored to be included in this luminous group. Just look at how pink we are.

APRIL 29, 2014

Thrilled to be interviewed by the inimitable David Dower of HowlRound for one of his Friday phone calls.  Here’s where you can listen to it.

April 10, 2014

Congrats to Keith, Jovan, Skylar, Allison, Sarah, Adonis, Mary & Becky for their great work during 600 HWM’s residency at SUNY Purchase.

January 27, 2014

We had to get this coverage from Deutschlandfunk translated. Here’s what (we’re told) it says: “The Record is undoubtedly one of the highlights of [Under the Radar] festival…[It] brings up for discussion the most original relationship since the beginning of theater: that between performer and audience. And when suddenly the last performer has disappeared, a strange mix of sadness and unbridled joy sets in. The excitement over this can be felt in the overcrowded lobby long after the performance.”  Perhaps you speak german? (Thanks, Sasa Celecki, for the translation.)

January 20, 2014

What a whirlwind Under the Radar has been. Thanks friends (new + old) to coming out and seeing the show. We just caught this interesting writing about the show courtesy of Exeunt Magazine: “The Record explores the nature of being human, of being at all, moving and interacting with hundreds of others just like, but not quite like, us. To touch, to feel, to breathe, to see: it is an intense moment of being present and of being in this all together.”
Read the full piece here.

January 16, 2014

Olivia Jane Smith (NY Theatre Review) on THE RECORD: “Without seeing it, The Record might sound like a formalist work, about bodies in space. But in the flesh the piece transcends its structure and becomes about people. We don’t know anything about them, or what these gestures mean or don’t mean to them, or what they feel. But despite this—or, more likely, because of it—their individual humanity shines through each face, each gesture and step, and we bear witness to it. In this way, The Record is us.” – read full piece –


Charles Isherwood of the NY Times says THE RECORD at Under the Radar: “this simple yet sublime production … creates a feeling of quiet but intense intimacy, and even a shivery sense of reverence for the communal experience not just of theater, but of life itself.”


THE RECORD returns as a part of the Under the Radar festival at The Public Theater. Tickets and festival passes are now on sale. You can get them here. Here’s more info on this ultra-wonderful festival. See you in January!

NOVEMBER 26, 2012

Read Jessica Applebaum’s feature on 600 HWM in Culturebot. “There is something wonderfully and simplistically spiritual to this process …The typical plans, the hierarchies that are often followed, in the creation of a performance are in many ways leveled by the Abby and Michael … What follows is a theatrical event that unfolds before the audience in a manner that feels synergetic, feels as if it should take place in the space it was made and with the people who are performing it.”

NOVEMBER 2, 2012

20 minutes of a new 600 HWM work at Dixon Place, 8PM! One night only and ten performers. Come check it out.

Read Mark Gifford’s review of THIS GREAT COUNTRY: “I desperately want to tell you about the techniques the directors employ and provide you with my critical interpretation, but I’ll be a good boy and restrain myself. Telling would spoil the suprise. Just know this: At the end of the play, despite the fact that I knew how it would end, I had tears in my eyes, and I’m fairly certain I wasn’t the only one.” (Thank you, Mark!)

may 3,<br/> 2013

All performances of THIS GREAT COUNTRY are sold out! We are adding seats where we can. Please come on the waitlist and Fusebox staff will try to squeeze you in.
