World Premiere

Andrew Schneider


Theater, video, and installation pioneer Andrew Schneider, a longtime Wooster Group company member and winner of a 2015 Obie award for his show YOUARENOWHERE, returns to BAM with his latest intersection of technology, human connection, and performance. Through a darkened space, an unseen narrator guides each participant through a personal and collective cosmos. Five thousand precisely programmed points of light—inspired by seeing the Milky Way for the first time, Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room, and so much more—respond to each individual. Through movement, narrative, and the room’s enveloping sound, N O W I S W H E N W E A R E (the stars) invites viewers to explore traces of light in themselves and the universe.


Co-Commissioner/Producer: Produced with Los Angeles Performance Practice
