Andrew Schneider's YOUARENOWHERE is not your run of the mill theatrical experience. It is a merger of text and movement, technology and humanity, and conversation with existential interrogation. The play immediately immerses the audience in its world, demanding that we believe the truth of this place and time as we think we know it, and simultaneously challenges that notion of knowing. We, the audience, are Heiddegerian beings flung forward from the very moment Schneider enters the performance space, and for days afterward. What are we experiencing? What is missing? Why aren't we more concerned about these gaps?
Even the title evokes this questioning. You-Are-Nowhere? or You-Are-Now-Here? Both are relevant and appropriate and yet neither is quite right. This piece exists in the space between those two interpretations of its title, it seems. Here is a brief preview. Get tickets. This runs in NYC until April 10 after which it transfers to the Lift festival in London, which I have heard is sold out.
