Brandon has served as an artistic advisor on multiple new-works within the movement theatre style (e.g. Galatea, Prism) and in 2010 he produced his first original collaborative work, Inspiration.
The level of specificity and body-text connection required by the classic and movement theatre styles inspired his thesis on cross-disciplinary performance and non-text based theatre, which culminated in a produced exploration of the ancient myth surrounding Jason and Medea (details below). In the 2016 he debuted his collaborative production of Medea Myth (details below) in both Richmond, VA and Dallas, TX.
He also had the privilege of joining these two styles in a single performance as the Monster in the new work Frankenstein: Dawn of a Monster at VCU in 2015.
Brandon has worked extensively as a fight director in various productions between 2011 and to this date (Julius Caesar, Wait Until Dark, Equivocation–AD, Romeo and Juliet, Taming of the Shrew, Andromache, Comedy of Errors).
KATV LITTLE ROCK – KICK OFF TO COLLEGE
Brandon was recently invited with the Chair of A-State Theatre and A-State’s Chancellor to appear on Little Rock’s KATV station for their Kick Off to College segment. The team used the opportunity to discuss stage combat for theatre and show the audience some choreographed movement for theatre violence.
Brandon Sterrett completed a new works residency at The Celebration Barn in Maine in 2015 with his collaborative production MEDEA MYTH.The Celebration Barn is a physical theatre incubation space that has been in operation since the 1970s.
Medea Myth is a cross-disciplinary collaboration that explores Medea’s origin story. The production was produced initially in Richmond, VA at TheatreLAB in 2016 and subsequently – in conjunction with Prism Co. (a movement theatre) – at the AT&T Performing Arts Center in Dallas, TX in 2017.
Brandon’s eventual plans for Medea Myth is to take the production to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
