Andrew Schneider
with Andrew Schneider
Andrew Schneider has been creating original works for theater, video, and installation since 2003. Rooted at the intersection of performance and technology, Schneiders work critically investigates humanitys overdependence on perpetual connection in an always-on world. He creates and performs solo performance works and large-scale dance works, builds interactive electronic art works and installations, and was a Wooster Group company member (video/performer) from 2007-2014. Schneider is a recent recipient of the Tom Murrin Performance Award and an Artist-In-Residence at Dixon Place. His work has been performed in NYC at The Chocolate Factory, PS122, and Issue Project Room, and was curated by Laurie Anderson as part of the River to River festival in 2013. He creates wearable, interactive electronic art such as the Solar Bikini (a bikini that charges your iPod) and wireless programmable sound effect gloves. His interactive work has been featured in Art Forum and Wired and at the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Schneider also works with musical acts such as Fischerspooner (projections/performer), Kelela (projections/lighting), and AVAN LAVA (lighting/percussion/vocals).

Radiohole
with Radiohole
Maybe the one thing you can say with certainty is that Radiohole is shocking.

Radioholes original productions have been presented at New York City venues including PS122, The Kitchen, and the Collapsable Hole, and have toured nationally and internationally. Radiohole has received commissions from Mass Live Arts, PS122, The Kitchen, The Walker Art Center, and the Andy Warhol Museum via the Spaulding Gray Award.

Joseph Silovsky // Send for the Million Men
A critically acclaimed piece by writer/performer/designer Joseph Silovsky, deals with the controversial trial and execution of Sacco and Vanzetti, two immigrants wrongly accused of robbery and murder in Braintree, MA in 1920. Silovsky interprets this story as a fever-paced piece of multimedia-infused theater. Silovsky uses and misuses text, cutout puppetry, and homemade crude machines. The tale of Sacco and Vanzetti, known from history books, is enriched and transformed by an unconventional approach to storytelling. The result is passionate and relevant reflection on marginalized classes, justice, the judicial system, and what happens when this system fails. What emerges at the meeting point of scholarly knowledge and artistic innovation is a portrait of the two men and the divided era in which they lived, as told by a crazed inventor. The show premiered at NYC's HERE in 2014 and returns in its original form, featuring striking video design by Victor Morales and music by Catherine McRae.

Phil Soltanoff // MLA Institute: MLA Institute Performance
MLA is proud to introduce our new educational initiative: The Mass Live Arts Institute. It is a program designed for recent college graduates looking to advance their career as performing artists. Throughout July, Institute fellows will participate in daily workshops and master classes, working hand in hand with festival artists. They will also create and perform their own work under the guidance of internationally renowned director and educator Phil Soltanoff, who will direct the institute show presented as part of the MLA/15 summer offerings. Our goal is for the Institute's fellows to become intimately familiar with the rigors of making cutting-edge contemporary performance, establish personal relationships with a network of award-winning artists - and, above all, gain real-life experience producing large-scale contemporary works. Over the past two years, MLA has been successfully connecting freshly minted young artists with renowned performers and companies, giving them a chance to participate in hands-on, face-to-face training that has translated into real, professional opportunities. Many of our participants garnered work performing, designing, and some found entry level positions at our partner organizations in NYC. Soltanoff envisions this production as a form built from fragments -- pieces of choreography, text, lights, sound, etc. The emphasis is placed on the theatrical vitality of each fragment and what they do, not what they mean. "Meaning is created through juxtaposition, and meaning isn't known until something happens next to something else." - says Soltanoff. In creating this show institute fellows will immerse themselves in the process of using juxtaposition as an essential tool for building work.

Heather Fisch: Residency & Work in Progress // The Tarot Show
Heather Fisch is a Berkshires-based musician and performer. Inspired by the early days of vaudeville, she seeks to recreate a performing arts culture that existed in America before the advent of the motion picture. Fisch's intention is to reviving this tradition deepen ties between communities and their local performance venues. Her new piece will be workshopped and presented at the MLA before its premiere in August 2015. A blend of physical theater, chance operation, audience participation, multimedia and live music, Tarot Show works like a Rubik's cube of twenty-two distinct vignettes, each one representing one of the trump cards from the tarot deck: The Magician, The Fool, The High Priestess, etc. A reading of seven tarot cards executed at the beginning of each performance dictates both the story arch and characters appearing for the evening. The resulting "choose-your-own-adventure" performance combines structure and chaos, synchronicity and entropy.

Andrew Schneider // YOUARENOWHERE
2015 OBIE-winning show YOUARENOWHERE by Andrew Shcneider combines performance with a landscape of visual and aural effects to produce a disorienting, hyperactive experience that questions reality in all its physical and psychological aspects.The performance weaves together fractured stories, mistaken identities, pop-science, and personal confessions that deal with subjects as incongruent as quantum mechanics, parallel universes, and Craigslist's Missed Connections. The rich scenic environment compresses both form and content to the point of sensory and emotional overload. Award-winning performer and designer Andrew Schneider has been creating original works for theater, video, and installations since 2003. His pieces exist at the intersection of performance and technology and deal with humanity's over-dependence on perpetual connection in an always-on world. Andrew was a Wooster Group company member (video/performer, 2007-2014.) He also creates wearable, interactive electronic art, such as the Solar Bikini (a bikini that charges your iPod) and wireless programmable sound effect gloves.

Two actors. Two screens. One single take. The final scene of a movie. In July 2013, the acclaimed director Daniel Fish assembled a film crew to shoot Thomas Jay Ryan and Christina Rouner performing the final scene of the cult film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." For two hours, the performers were told to keep going, no matter what happens. "Eternal," first presented in 2013 at the Incubator Arts Project, is the unedited, two-channel video of their performance.

RADIOHOLE // Tarzana
Legendary, award-winning experimental theater company Radiohole will present the world premiere of Tarzana! A comic book comes alive on the stage, Tarzana is set within a wholly hand-drawn landscape and follows the mis-adventures of a guilt-ridden Superman, a pair of sexy blonde twins, Robespierre, and a lawnmower. What comes to pass is surreal mayhem in true Radiohole tradition: an uproarious, bacchanalian, beautiful mess. Be warned: There may be (fake) blood. Tarzana is a collaboration with award-winning playwright and screenwriter Jason Grote (Mad Men) who wrote the script expressly for Radiohole. The troupe in turn brings its own influences into this comic booklike world with a dash of punk rock, David Lynch, the French Revolution, karaoke, and carnival. Cupcakes and drinks will be served to all! A Mass Live Arts commission and world premiere
