“A lovely, haunting meditation on human connection, and disconnection …
a poetic evocation of our mostly unspoken –– and un-called upon –– dependence on one another.”

– New York Times

A performance built from our dependence on one another. Created by Obie Award-winning 600 HIGHWAYMEN and returning from its debut in Under the Radar, The Fever is a public convergence for today, asking how we assemble, organize, and care for the bodies around us. Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming is co-presented by The Public Theater and Onassis USA.
