After a successful premier at Highways Performance Space, Andrew Pearson brings his one-man dance-theater performance to the Eastside. Part introspective journal entry, part silly and fanciful performance art, this work follows the pursuit of happiness, as seen through the eyes of a gay millennial.
Andrew Pearson is a movement artist with a unique and extensive performance background. He has strong ties to the concert dance community, receiving his training from the University of California, Irvine and dancing with companies including BodyTraffic, Clairobscure, String Theory, LollieWorks, The Union Project Dance Company, and most notably with the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company from 2011-2017. However, it has been his work in non-traditional dance settings that has truly allowed Andrew’s performance to shine. These experiences include exhibitions in the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions the FIAC Art Fair in Paris, France and the Centre du Pompiduo in Malaga, Spain as well as physical acting in front of the camera for musical artists Clipping. and Zhu and playing the title character’s silhouette in the LA Philharmonic’s production of Young Caesar at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.
This history seeps into Andrew’s choreography, with a knack for connecting humanity and intention to movement. He has lent his talents to many theater productions and events, including numerous showings for the Hollywood Fringe Festival, a Green Show production for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and the world premier opera El Canguro. He has also been commissioned to create choreography for the LA Contemporary Dance Company, PGK Dance Project, El Camino College, Santa Monica College, and was an Artist in Residence with Northern Kentucky University. Andrew pulls from this breadth of experience for his solo work, creating deeply personal yet resonant productions.
