YOUARENOWHERE

By Andrew Schneider, At 3-Legged Dog

About the Show

OBIE award-winning creator and performer Andrew Schneider’s YOUARENOWHERE is a rapid-fire existential meditation, using physics lecture, 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 complex visual and aural effects to produce a fluid, shifting 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.

Critics' Pick! “Inventive…astounding…continually finds new ways to challenge and engage its viewers, to surprise and mystify us."
- Alexis Soloski, New York Times

Five Stars, Critics' Pick! “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
