A man with a nosebleed appears, possibly from the near future, to tell us something. Microphones crackle and break. Lighting instruments fall from the ceiling. Signals get scrambled and transmissions glitch. Modes of communication malfunction as something unseen prevents the man from telling us the thing that will prevent his imminent future death.
Award–winning creator and performer Andrew Schneider’s YOUARENOWHERE is a rapid–fire existential meditation, using physics lecture, pop culture and a 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, 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.
