I first programmed Andrew Schneider in 2005 for Performance Space 122’s Avant-Garde-Arama, subsequently in the Prelude Festival and, most recently, presented his work in the 2013 River To River Festival as part of a programming track co-curated with Laurie Anderson. I have written about his work extensively including a critical essay in the journal Theatre Forum and an article for the Baryshnikov Arts Center.
