As a director, Andrew seeks to serve the play, to find the most effective physical and aesthetic realisation of the work with the resources available. A focus on the body in improvisation, communication and play, would generally be his preferred starting place.
A background of language and literary study supports his work as a director in Shakespeare and the classics, as well as with contemporary plays. His formidable and wide-ranging experience as a performer is an equally valuable resource. As each project calls for its own approach, offering a creative and timely response to the specific material is an essential component of Andrew’s directing practice.
Andrew has been employed as a theatre director at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Drama Centre London, Central St Martins University of the Arts London, Middlesex University, Rose Bruford College, Central School of Speech and Drama, LAMDA, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, and Mills College, Oakland, California.
