The Fever

A Co-Presentation by La MaMa, The Public Theater, and Onassis USA

"The Fever Finds That Friendliness Can Be Contagious"

- New York Times

The Fever tests the limits of an individual and collective responsibility, and our willingness to be there for one another. Returning from its debut in Under the Radar, performed in complete collaboration with the audience, The Fever examines 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.
