We are closer than we think

Pick up the phone. Someone is on the line. You don’t know their name, and you still won’t when the hour is over, but as you follow the recorded instructions, a portrait of your partner will emerge through fleeting moments of exposure. Created by 600 HIGHWAYMEN (The Fever, 2018), this enthralling, imaginative, and profound social experience delivers us from isolation to eventual congregation. Designed as one part of a triptych of encounters, A Thousand Ways (Part One): A Phone Call takes each participant on a treasure hunt of essential reckoning.

How does it work?
24 hours before, we will send you a telephone number to call at the time listed above. The experience will begin once you and the other participant have arrived.

Can I attend the experience with another member of my household?
No. This ticket is for one person only. We recommend you book at different times.

Where should I call from?
It would be best if you were in your place of current residence, in a quiet indoor space, and by yourself.

What kind of phone do I need?
Any phone will work. All that matters is that it’s charged, cordless, and gets good reception.

Can I use headphones or speakerphone?
Corded headphones are fine. Bluetooth/wireless headphones are not recommended. Please do not use speakerphone.

I’m calling from another country, what should I do?
Please reach out and we’ll give you a local phone number. Click here to email us.

What else do I need to know?
Due to the intimate nature of this experience, we cannot accommodate late arrivals.
