Rover Arts just published an interesting article about Andrew’s most recent work Monsters Angels and Aliens are not a Substitute for Spirituality as well as the work of Caroline Laurin-Beaucage and Donald Trepanier, with whom he shared a triple bill as part of the Festival OFFTA this past May 28th. Great writing by Fabien Malthais-Baya, putting the performances into greater social context. We need more writing about performance like this!
Also check this podcast of Andrew talking about some of the ideas behind the work from the folks @ Dirty Feet
