Andrew Murdock is an interdisciplinary artist and educator (K-12 in NYC public schools). He specializes in generating new work in a highly collaborative process and sees teaching as an extension of this practice. His work often bridges the tangible and digital by utilizing techniques in video, physical theatre and puppetry. He holds a customized BFA dual major in Sculpture and Film, Animation, Video (FAV) from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College focusing on collaborative theatre making and the integration of technology. He has worked with Dan Hurlin, David Neumann, Phantom Limb, Basil Twist and Bread and Puppet Theater. For the past three years he has been developing Shoot, Don’t Talk, a new hybrid theater project that explores our current relationship with Western films by recreating iconic shots live on stage with actors, live video and puppetry. The show was part of a residency culminating in a work-in-progress performance in Spring 2019 as part of Puppet Lab at St Ann’s Warehouse, NYC. Other recent credits include: Original solo Zoom performance Self/soul Care/comedy (BAAD! Shadows, Shapes and Objects), Honorary mention for short film A Horse Called Luck (LA Puppetry Guild’s 48-Hour Film Project) and Assistant Sound and Video Design for Lulu XX by the Waxfactory (Connelly Theater, NYC).
