Andrew Coopman
2022-23 Drama League
FutureNow Directing Fellow

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 Intersectional and, most basically, Human. 


I am a genderqueer director, choreographer, and playwright of Middle Eastern & European descent.


I am a human who desires connection and fierce conversations inspired by a compelling theatrical experience. 


We, all of us, are storytellers, it's a part of our most essential essence. And when we listen and share our stories,

they illuminate the path towards transformative connection.

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