About me

Andy Dexterity is a Green Room Award-nominated performance maker primarily recognised for his unique brand of movement, fusing dance, physical theatre and signed languages as shown in his 2017 TED talk. Andy is fascinated by the way we communicate and interact as a species and he creates work with the intention to connect and empower. Hailing from a theatre background, Andy has performed roles in award-winning shows for Melbourne Theatre Company, Sydney Theatre Company, Opera Australia and Belvoir Street Theatre, including the Australian premieres of Urinetown and Altarboyz. Andy choreographed original “signdance” choreography for Grammy Award-winning pop singer, Kimbra, conducted the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for “The Wiggles Meet The Orchestra”, was special guest in the 2014 Outgames Opening Ceremony, performed “signdancing” with Tina Arena and opened the 2015 Australian Dance Awards at The Sydney Opera House. As a choreographer, he devised en-masse “signdancing” for the opening ceremony of the 2015 World Netball Cup and he also choreographed the Australian revival of RENT – the musical and You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown, both for The Hayes Theatre Company. One of the artistic directors of the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras, Andy is also an ambassador for Deaf Australia, has taught Auslan (Australian Sign Language) for The Deaf Society of NSW as well as Dance, Movement, Yoga and Meditation around the world.
