YOUARENOWHERE is a rapid-fire existential meditation. Acclaimed performer, writer, and interactive-electronics artist Andrew Schneider uses a lecture-style format, pop culture, and personal revelation to dissect subjects ranging from quantum mechanics and parallel universes to missed connections and AA recovery steps. Using an array of visual and sonic effects to produce a landscape of sensory overload, YOUARENOWHERE transforms the physical performance space and warps linear time to short-circuit preconceived notions of individual perspective and what it means to be here now.
YOUARENOWHERE is the first chapter of an existential trilogy by Schneider and his collaborators about modern life and our relationship to technology and other humans. The second chapter of the trilogy, AFTER, will be presented Oct 25–27 as part of On the Boards’ Subscription Series.
“Inventive…astounding…continually finds new ways to challenge and engage its viewers, to surprise and mystify us.” NYTimes Critics’ Pick
— Alexis Soloski, the New York Times
“A weird hybrid of an inspirational seminar, confessional one-man show, introductory lecture on relativity and visually gorgeous prediction of what will happen when the machines take over, YOUARENOWHERE is a tour de force—both of acting and design.” ★★★★★
—Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

About the Artist
Andrew Schneider is an OBIE award-winning, Drama Desk-nominated performer, writer, and interactive-electronics artist who has created original works for theater, video, and installation since 2003. Rooted at the intersection of performance and technology, Schneider’s work critically investigates our over-dependence on being perpetually connected in an always-on world.
Schneider’s original performance work includes YOUARENOWHERE (winner of the 2015 OBIE award; nominated for a 2016 Drama Desk award), DANCE/FIELD (2014), TIDAL (2013), WOW+FLUTTER (2010), and many more. He was a resident artist at the University of Chicago where he created TRUE+FALSE (2007), and STRATEGIES AGAINST ARCHITECTURE (2008) among other works. Schneider’s wearable, interactive electronic art works include the Solar Bikini (a bikini that charges your iPod) and wireless programmable sound effect gloves. His interactive work has been featured in publications such as Artforum and Wired and presented at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Based in Brooklyn, New York, Schneider was a Wooster Group company member (video/performer) from 2007–2014.
