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...)
