Interdisciplinary Performance. Whether its turning folktales into theatrical spectacles, poetry into abstract moving portraits, or oral histories into scifi mixed media productions, Andy’s work as a teaching artist focuses on the sharing of experience through performance. With a background that includes innovative education programs, such as the Award Winning, Providence based “I Was There Project,” and the nationally recognized “Silk Road Connect,” directed by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, he fuses elements of dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts to help students and teachers connect the learning across disciplines, both inside and out of the classroom.
