Andrea Bou Othmane is a self-taught Italian-Tunisian movement artist. Born in Monza, Italy, Bou Othmane’s dance journey started in 2009 with electro dance, a natural extension of his friend group at the time. He progressed rapidly, eventually becoming the 1:1 Italian champion in this dance style. From there, Bou Othmane started to explore and become well-versed in other dance techniques.
Since then, Bou Othmane has appeared in a vast array of creative projects and shows on a global scale. In 2019 he spent one month touring Africa with the show Mirrors, produced by Griot Magazine, and then in 2022, he started working for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Eastman, where he premiered the duet creation Antidote for the 90th Anniversary Gala of Jacob’s Pillow. In the same year, Bou Othmane appeared in the revival of the musical Starmania by Michel Berger and Luc Plamondon, directed by Thomas Jolly, and as the lead dancer in Sutra by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, produced by Sadler’s Wells.
In 2023, Bou Othmane worked with Cherkaoui on the opera production of Hanjo at Bayerische Staatsoper, the campaign of Dom Perignon ft. Lady Gaga, directed by Woodkid, and THE LOUBI SHOW IV for Christian Louboutin at Paris Fashion Week 2023. Andrea performed a dance solo during the televised award ceremony of the Ultimas in honor of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Most recently, Andrea was featured as lead dancer in the music video Try Me by Jorja Smith.
