Executive Director, Englert Theatre
Andre Perry is a writer, festival curator, and executive director of the Englert Theatre, a 104‐year‐old performing arts space in the heart of downtown Iowa City. He is the co‐founder and director of the Mission Creek Festival, a week‐long exploration of performance, literature, and community‐focused events that inhabit established venues as well as nontraditional performance spaces in Iowa City. In 2015, he started the Englert‐incubated project, Witching Hour. The event explores the unknown, discusses the creative process, and presents new work across a range of disciplines, such as film, literature, science, and business innovation.
