Andre + Leah
André and Leah are a bold and innovative duo of Writer Directors whose ability to merge dreamlike visuals with impassioned storytelling and dynamic performance has seen them quickly rise to the top. Having an extensive background in dance and acting combined with circus arts, their creations span a wide variety of worlds. Making their mark all across the globe, Leah and André recently directed and choreographed Franco Dragone’s The Dai Show in southern China, which focused on the unique culture surrounding the area. Their work included the direction and choreography of fountains, dance, acrobatics, video projection, characters and more. In the same year they also had the pleasure of choreographing Cirque du Soleil’s Allavita! at the World Expo in Milan — a six-month long event bringing people all over the world to celebrate the food and culture of Italy. Transporting their fresh voices back to the states, André and Leah recently helped refresh two long-standing and world-renowned Cirque du Soleil shows on the Las Vegas strip. You can now watch their character, dance and aerial choreography in Mystère at Treasure Island and The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage. Along with creating for the Beatles on stage, they also co-directed and choreographed the most recent official Beatles music video While My Guitar Gently Weeps, working alongside the progressive and visionary live projection mapping artist, Dandypunk. Not always designing on a large scale, André and Leah have also written and directed the intimate off-Broadway production Gray St; an emotional journey of a modern family, and were associate directors and choreographers on the novel and eccentric musical Clowntown. Their other credits include choreographing Marvel Universe Live: Age of Heroes (including fire and character work), acting as supervising choreographers for Cirque du Soleil’s philanthropic show One Night for One Drop, creating works for the Nevada Ballet Theatre and Circus Couture, and aiding in the movement for the Warner Brothers’ movie Spring Breakdown.
Currently, Leah and André are writing, creative producing and directing an original large-scale spectacle in Guadalajara, Mexico, which is set to open September of 2018.
