4_5_Andrew Wass_bajaBy experimenting with aleatoric processes, Andrew Wass finds that movement reveals an inherent awkwardness, a humor that echoes our own vulnerabilities.  He formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious processes of composition that are the generative source of much of his works.  Influenced heavily by his undergraduate studies of Biochemistry at U.C. San Diego, Andrew works by creating a defined, almost crystalline palette in order to generate a myriad of possibilities.  The possibilities are reduced and concentrated in the moments of execution and reception.   A member of the performance groups Non Fiction and Lower Left he is a recent graduate of the MA program of Solo/Dance/Authorship at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum für Tanz in Berlin.
