While at Camargo, Abigail and Michael (600 HIGHWAYMEN) will be developing their new works : The Total People, a large-scale performance that will use upwards of 150 singers to investigate how singing in public is a humanely revealing and transformative act, and Untitled, a yet-to-be-titled work about spectatorship and romance.
