Alternate Title NERVOUS / SYSTEM
Premiere New York Premiere
Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description NERVOUS/SYSTEM is a live theater performance by Obie winner Andrew Schneider and recurring collaborators that integrates video mapping, innovative lighting, and 3D sound spatialization to reveal everyday human narratives hidden in plain sight. The third project in a triptych of new performance works following YOUARENOWHERE (2016 Coil Festival) and AFTER (2018 Under the Radar festival), NERVOUS/SYSTEM continues Schneider’s signature rapid-fire existential meditations using physics, pop culture references, and personal revelations to dissect subjects ranging from quantum mechanics to parallel universes to missed connections to AA recovery steps. Using an array of complex visual and aural effects to produce a fluid, shifting landscape of sensory overload, NERVOUS/SYSTEM becomes a live cartography of the self/human brain, pulling the frame way back and examining our relationship to the systems around (and between) us.
