Andy Houston is an artist-researcher in intermedia and site-specific performance, and an associate professor of drama at the University of Waterloo. He and Kathleen Irwin started Knowhere Productions Inc. in 2002, a company devoted to the exploration of site-specific and site-responsive performance (see www.knowhereproductions.ca). In the last fifteen years, he has directed and dramaturged several large-scale site-specific, intermedia productions. As a scholar, he has published broadly in his field and edited a Canadian Theatre Review issue on site-specific performance, as well as a collection of writings on environmental and site-specific theatre in Canada, published by Playwrights Canada Press.
During his two-month residency at ZK/U, he will be collaborating with Ilya Noé.
