“Inventive … astounding … continually finds new ways to challenge and engage its viewers, to surprise and mystify us.” —New York Times (on Schneider’s YOUARENOWHERE)

This new, one-of-a-kind, immersive experience comes from the mind of theater/technology pioneer Andrew Schneider (whose YOUARENOWHERE dazzled Out There audiences in 2017). N O W I S W H E N W E A R E (the stars) draws on inspirations as broad as seeing the Milky Way for the first time to installations such as Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room and Random International’s Rain Room. Walking in total darkness to immersion in a theatrical cosmos of 4,000 reactive points of light with an enveloping 496-channel sound design, viewers explore traces of themselves in starlight, the universe, and those who have been here before us.

This is a non-seated, interactive environment set up on the transformed McGuire stage. Audience members are free to move around the space. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
