YOUARENOWHERE Set for COIL FestivalYOUARENOWHERE Set for COIL Festival
by BWW News Desk - Dec 2, 2014

As part of the tenth edition of the COIL festival, Performance Space 122 and The Invisible Dog Art Center present the world premiere of YOUARENOWHERE by Andrew Schneider, a theater artist, best known as a video designer and performer in The Wooster Group (2007 -2014), whose work is rooted at the intersection of performance and technology. YOUARENOWHERE experiments with the virtues of sensory overload via quantum mechanics, parallel universes and Craigslist's 'Missed Connections.' Battling glitchy transmissions, crackling microphones and lighting instruments falling from the sky, one guy on a mission and a tricked-out interactive new-media landscape merge to transform physical space, warp linear time and short-circuit preconceived notions of what it means to be here now. YOUARENOWHERE is created by Schneider with Peter Musante, Christine Shallenberg and Omar Zubair and is produced by Shelley Carter. (more...)

The Kitchen to Premiere New Tina Satter WorkThe Kitchen to Premiere New Tina Satter Work
by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2014

Award-winning writer and director Tina Satter, along with her company Half Straddle, re-imagine and re-invigorate cult pop and literary tropes in an effort to trouble and question language and identity. As company member Jess Barbagallo has written, 'Characters in Tina's plays are often on the precipice of a subversive self-discovery, and articulate a sad but liberating and intrinsically queer value: that the self is perhaps never to be discovered, but always to be made.' In Satter's meticulous landscapes, both actors and characters playfully embrace fluidity, feminine agency and subversion. Critics have marveled at Satter's theatricality. Ben Brantley in The New York Times called her work, 'enchanting,' and, 'so very refreshing' while Helen Shaw in Time Out New York declared, 'Satter's Half Straddle company is launching a particularly coordinated goal-line drive to a new feminist form.'
