Identity, Curiosity, Discovery

I create theater experiences that foster a curiosity and brave space for personal discovery... An exploration into the many parts who we are, who we were, and who we want to be. An act of creativity with the central question: "Are we really that different?"

 I fundamentally believe both of the following things to be true: 

That we are all of our individual identities. That we are all Human. 


As a Queer, Multicultural, Feminist, Interdisciplinary Artist, I am all of those things, and a human who desires connection and wants to bring people together for fierce conversations and a compelling theatrical experience.


Individuality and intersectionality are both vital to the celebration and creation of truly dynamic and inspiring communities, and this is at the center of all my work. We, all of us, are storytellers, and when we voice our stories, they illuminate the path towards transformative connection.

An artist whose work has been described as "scrappy, mystical, & deeply moving... They make the magical real."

A director who "collaborates dynamically, creates a brave creative space, & leads from the heart."

A storyteller with "a unique perspective, unafraid of the hard questions, inquisitive, curious, passionate." 

My name is Andrew Coopman (He/They), & I can't wait to work with you.
