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.

“…there exists nothing else like it. This is what LIFT is for, what theatre is for. A genuinely mind-blowing show.” (full review) – Tim Bano, The Stage UK

“Exeunt don’t do star ratings but if we did, this would be five stars.” (full review) – Lauren Mooney, Exeunt Magazine

“Revelatory Theater” (full review)
– Miriam Felton-Dansky, The Village Voice

“Jagged and miraculous” (full review)
– The New Yorker

“Transcendent mind-fuckery”
NYMag Approval Matrix

“Inventive…astounding…continually finds new ways to challenge and engage its viewers, to surprise and mystify us. ★★★★★” NYTimes Critics’ Pick. (full review)
– 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. ★★★★★” (full review)
– Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

“Schneider and his crack team of creative collaborators have near-perfected their own brand of intelligent spectacle…they wholly transform the performance space into an unsettling, unidentifiable elsewhere. Not since Richard Foreman’s productions have I seen interiority and exteriority collapsed so compellingly, carving out a singular space in which both actors and audience perform.” (full review)
– Jennifer Krasinski, ARTFORUM

“A wondrous and disorienting sci-fi, it hitches high-tech gadgetry to the bodily arts in a way that stays true to both the intellectual fascinations of scientific theory, and the immediacy and physical presence of theatre. ★★★★½” (full review)
– Cameron Woodhead, The Sydney Morning Herald

“As exploratory as a Mars probe and equally as impressive in scope and ambition. An electrifying mission into the distant galaxies of the self. ★★★★★” (full review)
-Tim Byrne, Time Out Melbourne
