Andrea Murillo is a classically-trained performer whose style has been widely influenced by her work with modernist dance and contemporary theater heavyweights.
Andrea’s career in dance began at Miami’s innovative New World School of the Arts. Shortly thereafter, she began touring with the Martha Graham Dance Company where she performed in solo roles in the acclaimed works Lamentation (1930), Serenata Morsica (1916), Embattled Garden (1958), and Steps in the Street (1936.)
Her expressive, character-forward experiences with the company lent themselves organically to her subsequent work, highlights of which include Lady Macbeth in New York’s Sleep No More (2012) and productions of Le Baccanti and Prometeo with Sicily’s Istituto Nazionale Dramma Antico.
These works have continued to impel her investigation of dramatic movement, immersive theatre, and their vehicles of expression, notably film. Andrea is a recent Master Interdisciplinary Arts Teacher with the National YoungArts Foundation and is a certified Gyrotonic Expansion System Teacher.
