Principal and Founder, Andre Bouchard (of Kootenai and Ojibwe descent) was born and raised on the Flathead Reservation in western Montana. He is a nationally recognized for his work in and advocacy for the field of Native American contemporary performing arts. He has worked in practically every roll in the performing arts since he began as an independent producer in 1999. In 2001 he founded Walrus Performance Productions, a non-profit dedicated to providing first opportunities to choreographers, playwrights and multi-disciplinary performing artists in the Pacific Northwest. In this role he opened the Walrus Theatre, a blackbox venue in the heart of Seattle's Capital Hill which fell victim to the real estate boom of 2008. He has since worked in a variety of leadership roles at arts organizations including: Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, Edmonds Community College Black Box Theatre, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and at Gateway to the Arts. He has been a grant panelist with the National Endowment for the Arts, Oregon Arts Commission/Oregon Cultural Trust and Washington State Arts Commission among others.
