Anděl’s deep well of performance experience and success makes her perspective unique as a director and teacher. Her hands on, in depth work within the disciplines of long form improvisation, short form, sketch and theater make her a thoroughly well-rounded and open minded conduit for art, creation, polish and playfulness.
