World Premiere Of N O W I S W H E N W E A R E (the Stars) Comes to BAM This Month

Theater, video, and installation pioneer Andrew Schneider, a longtime Wooster Group company member and winner of a 2015 Obie award for his show N O W I S W H E N W E A R E, returns to BAM with his latest intersection of technology, human connection, and performance. Through a darkened space, an unseen narrator guides each participant through a personal and collective cosmos. Five thousand precisely programmed points of light-inspired by seeing the Milky Way for the first time, Yayoi Kusama's Infinity Mirror Room, and so much more-respond to each individual. Through movement, narrative, and the room's enveloping sound, N O W I S W H E N W E A R E (the stars) invites viewers to explore traces of light in themselves and the universe.

Andrew Schneider is an OBIE award-winning, Drama Desk-nominated performer, writer, and interactive-electronics artist creating original works for theater, dance, sound, video, and installation since 2003. In 2019 Schneider was commissioned to create an original choreographic work for the Sasha Waltz & Guests dance company to premiere in March of 2020. The show »remains« premiered for a single night before the global pandemic shut down all public gatherings. During the pandemic he has focused on demonstrating in the streets, facilitating a group to look at systemic oppression and privilege, and creating the technical infrastructure for a time-based, narrative, immersive, light and sound installation dealing with grief, loss, and presentness. Schneider is a recipient of the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists award (2020). He is currently a Sundance "Art of the Practice" fellow and has received a fellowship from the Junge Akademie / Akademie Der Künste in Berlin (2022).
