Andrews has choreographed and performed for film, theater, and music videos, creating work for LA Contemporary Dance Company, Joffrey Ballet School and Daft Punk, among others.

Established in 2007 The MOVEMENT movement aims to "preserve past and present cultural traditions through authentic alternative performance experiences" by combining movement, musical theater, performance art, dance and text.

The company has performed at various theaters museums and galleries including the Los Angeles Museum of Art, the Santa Monica Museum of Art , the Hammer Museum, El Portal and LACE Gallery.

Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the designers of the highly acclaimed High Line in New New, Tongva Park features an unusual geography of gardens, winding paths and urban vistas.
