Curator and producer Peter Musante (Andrew Schneider's YOUARENOWHERE; Blue Man Group; Trusty Sidekick's Up and Away, a groundbreaking show for kids with autism, called 'immersive theater at its most thoughtful' by the New York Times) joins West Coast physical comedienne Summer Shapiro ('raises the craft of clowning to new levels'- NYTheatre.org) to conceive of a new immersive theater festival for the entire family, inspired by the community organizing principles of Jane Jacobs. With seven new works based on true events from Greenwich Village history, the festival brings together leading NYC experimental theatre artists, musicians, physical comedians and clowns for two programs, each consisting of an interactive pre-show and four short stories that bring the surrounding neighborhood to life. The event, recommended for ages 5 and up, is presented by New Ohio Theatre as part of its Theatre for Young Minds holiday series. The performances run from December 20 thru 31 at 154 Christopher Street, NYC. Tickets are $25 ($18 for groups of three or more with the code 'family') and can be purchased through OvationTix (https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/1001863) or by calling 866-811-4111.

YOUARENOWHERE 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.
