You Are Here (The
Maze) is a performance festival in a sculptural maze taking place at Williamsburg’s Death By Audio venue (49 South 2nd St, Brooklyn) from September
10 – October 2, 2009, with performances starting each evening at 9pm and
running late.


 Emphasizing the
sprawling and interconnected nature of New
York’s underground, a trip through the maze offers a
peak inside NYC’s diy art/music scene. A meditation on passage and desire, You Are Here engulfs the space and
presents beckoning inhabitants, dead ends, and uplifting epitaphs. Medium and
genre vary and overlapping and simultaneous performances are frequent, each
performer establishing a different corner or dead end as his or hers.
Participating artists in the 3-week festival include Calvin Johnson, Screaming Females, Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities,
Zs, Excepter, Mick Barr, The Coathangers, Knyfe Hyts, The Present, Loud
Objects, Grooms, Effi Briest, Extra Life, Mike Pride, Dan Friel, Ninjasonik,
Vaz, Pygmy Shrews, Nine 11 Thesaurus, and many many others.

The tentative schedule is
below, although the You Are Here
organizers hasten to add that it’s all intended to “subvert prefab expectations
for both audiences and performers-there is no prescribed order, start time or
end time, duration, location of performance, relation of audience to
performers, and so on. All of the participating artists have been asked to
create something site-specific since the performances will, in fact, take place
within the maze. Audiences will be asked only to expect something unusual.”
