 From Media Release:

Blending physics lecture, pop culture and personal revelation, YOUARENOWHERE exposes cracks and anomalies in the cosmos, dissecting subjects from quantum mechanics and parallel universes to missed connections and AA recovery steps.
Incorporating an array of visual and aural effects, creative coding, interactive electronics and wearable sensors,
YOUARENOWHERE conjures a fluid and shifting landscape of sensory overload.
Battling glitchy transmissions, crackling microphones and lighting instruments that fall from the sky, Andrew Schneider transforms physical space, warps linear time and short-circuits preconceptions of what it means to be here, now.
YOUARENOWHERE imagines the awe and discomfort of meeting oneself.
What happens when you view yourself from the outside?
How do you hold on to yourself when confronted with an exact replica?
Which one is real? Which one is you? And what happens next?
Creating original works for theatre, video, and installation since 2003 and rooted at the intersection of performance and technology, Schneider’s work critically investigates the over-dependence on being perpetually connected in an always-on world.
Schneider creates and performs award-winning solo performance works, large-scale dance works, builds interactive electronic art works and installations, and was a Wooster Group company member (video/performer) from 2007-2014.
