600 Highwaymen

It may defy description, but MANMADE EARTH is connecting with audiences. Created by New York City-based 600 Highwaymen, the production debuted in Buffalo a year ago as part of a larger festival hosted by Torn Space Theater. With eight young actors from Buffalo in tow, MANMADE EARTH has been on the move, including performances in front of sold-out audiences at Brooklyn's Invisible Dog Art Center. This weekend the show will conclude its local two-week run at 612 Fillmore Avenue.

Since Torn Space Theater made the historic landmark its home, the Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle has been central to a number of ambitious site-specific productions. With the support of the UB CAI grant,  the Mickiewicz will host two separate performances for multiple runs this weekend. The group 600 Highwaymen presents Manmade Earth. Torn Space Theater is producing Light/Station, which will lead patrons from the Mickiewicz outside to a massive stone sculpture to an organ concert in St. Stanislaus Church.
