Texas Premiere
Presented with Fusebox

Inspired by visions of the Milky Way and Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms, the stars is an introspective, awe-inspiring journey into a matrix of light. Visitors move from total darkness to immersion in a theatrical constellation of 4,000 reactive points of light and an enveloping 496-channel sound design.

Part meditation, part exploration, an unseen narrator guides each visitor on their own individual journey. Viewers explore traces of themselves in starlight, the universe, and those who have been here before us.

This precisely programmed performance installation comes from the mind of Andrew Schneider. An OBIE award-winner and Drama Desk nominee, Schneider is a performer, writer, and interactive-electronics artist based in Brooklyn, New York, where he has created original works for theater, dance, sound, video, and installation since 2003.

This is a non-seated, interactive environment set up on the McCullough Theater stage. Audience members are free to move around the space. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
