Suzanne Andrade is the co-founder and co-artistic director (with Paul Barritt) of the London-based theater company 1927.
1927's trademark style integrates performance, music and animation to create ground breaking theater. At 1927, she and Mr. Barritt (alongside fellow collaborators Esme Appleton and Lillian Henley) have worked together for 10 years to create their own unique style of theater making, inspired by their love of silent film and animation. For 1927, she has written and directed the multi-award-winning shows Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets and Golem. Awards for these productions include Herald Angel, Fringe First, Carol Tambor, Arches Brick, Total Theatre, Off West End, Critics Circle and the Peter Brook Empty Space Ensemble Award. Since 2007, the company has toured extensively across five continents to 38 countries. She is currently creating a new 1927 show, which will premiere in 2019.
Her operatic debut was with The Magic Flute for the Komische Opera Berlin, which she co-conceived and co-directed and which has been licensed to opera houses in Germany, the United States, Spain, Finland and Poland. In 2017, she co-created productions of Stravinsky's Petrushka and Ravel's L'enfant et les sortileges for the Komische Opera, co-directing the show with 1927 collaborator Esme Appleton. In 2015, she was featured alongside Paul Barritt in the Progress 1000, a list of the 1000 most influential people in London and in 2016 she was featured in The Stage 100 List of the most influential people in UK Theatre.
