A follow-up to Andrew Schneider‘s Obie Award-winning YOUARENOWHERE, which challenged audiences with a storyline drawn from quantum physics, AFTER goes a step further, probing the audience to consider where they are and how they got there. Working over the past year in residence at EMPAC, Schneider and his collaborators have developed the show’s content in tandem with experiments in new theatrical technology. In an effort to create intimacy and take the audience to the edge of the human condition, AFTER incorporates projection mapping, lighting effects, and sound spatialization technology.
AFTER will have its World Premiere at EMPAC on Thursday, August 31st and September 1st, 2017 at 8pm followed by a planned New York City premiere in early 2018.
This will be the first time that EMPAC’s Wave Field Synthesis speaker array has been applied in the theatrical context, allowing sound designer Bobby McElver to precisely place and move sounds through the performance space.
