    Synopsis: 

    A conjuror of futuristic shamanism, Andrew Schneider’s YOUARENOWHERE experiments with the virtues of sensory overload via quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and Craiglist’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.

    Sensory Overload Is Part of the Script

    Alexis Soloski

    January 14, 2015: You could say that the performer Andrew Schneider has tricks up his sleeve. Except he isn’t wearing any. In Mr. Schneider’s inventive, astounding and inexplicably shirtless Youarenowhere, part of the Coil festival, digital marvels synchronize with analog dance and personal revelation. Mr. Schneider spent many years as the Wooster Group’s whiz-kid-in-residence, designing many of their videos. He also has a sideline in wearable technology, like the Solar Bikini, which recharges your iPod while you suntan. And for the past several years, he’s been showing short works at performance events like Catch and Avant-garde-arama. He brings all of these experiences (well, maybe not the bikini specifically) to Youarenowhere, which can be parsed as either “You are now here” or “You are nowhere.” On Tuesday, the show started pretty late and then even later as a computer glitch fluffed the opening beat. Mr. Schneider, in shoes, slacks and ghostly white face paint, and with various devices taped to his biceps, rushed to the back of the Invisible Dog space to rejigger the lighting program. A medley of lights and sounds and speech, distorted and enhanced, then began. Some of this is cued to Mr. Schneider’s own voice and body via wearable sensors.
