Andrew Schneider YOUARENOWHERE
“Inventive, astounding…continually finds new ways to challenge and engage its viewers, to surprise and mystify us.”—New York Times (5 Star Critic’s Pick)
Take a rapid-fire, high-tech journey to discover what it means to be here right now in this not-to-be-missed, Obie Award–winning solo theater work. Performed with hyperkinetic energy by Andrew Schneider, a veteran of New York’s experimental theater scene and The Wooster Group, this existential meditation zaps from physics lecture to pop culture references and offhand personal revelations while dissecting quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and missed opportunities. Using an intense array of complex visual and aural effects to produce a shifting sensory landscape, YOUARENOWHERE warps linear time to short-circuit preconceived notions of individual perspective.
A mind-bending showcase for Schneider, YOUARENOWHERE has garnered exceptional reviews in the New York Times, New Yorker (which called it “jagged and miraculous”), and even Artforum. As a Time Out New York reviewer aptly observed, this “weird hybrid of an inspirational seminar, confessional one-man show, introductory lecture on relativity and visually gorgeous prediction of what will happen when the machines take over” is nothing less than “a tour de force—both of acting and design.”
Please note: Performance contains haze, loud sounds, strobe lights, and strong language.
