Co-Producer & Fundraising
As newly appointed Co-Producer in charge of Fundraising for Jamiel Laurence Creation, Andrew brings his experience of working with class-leading production companies such as Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures to the table. Andrew will play a key role in the formation of the JLC production house, creating new and exciting dance experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds across stage, screen and events.
Andrew also brings the unique skills required to help JLC become an industry leader in sustainability.
He formed a strong connection with the Theatre Green Book to which he contributed his groundbreaking Green Rider model. The model is now beginning to be used through the touring industry to set a new universal standard for engagement between touring companies and their respective regional venues. They have also continued to receive a 4-star rating from Julie’s Bicycle as an ACE NPO and were the very first touring company to receive such a rating.
With Andrew on board, Jamiel Laurence Creation will evolve with these award-winning policies forming a strong base.
Andrew began his career as a dancer with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures before receiving funding to train as a Practitioner member of the Institute of Environmental Managers and Assessors. He continues to work as a freelance dancer most recently featuring in Netflix’s Bridgerton.
Already developing the policy book for Jamiel Laurence Creation alongside its founder, Jamiel Devernay-Laurence, Andrew will continue to develop the new dance ecology at JLC, building on the success of initiatives including #FundFreelanceDance, BALLET NIGHTS and the new IGNITION PLATFORM.
