He is currently working on his PhD thesis at King's College entitled: 'Brazilianism: Translation and Adaptation of Contemporary Brazilian Drama through Devised Performance'.
More recently, he was an actor in Catherine Boyle’s translation of Sor Juana’s House of Desire at the Greenwood Theatre (2014) and at the Bots&Barrals and StoneCrabs co-production of Skin in Flames at the Park Theatre (2015).
He directed the pilot for the Regine Mont- Louis " The Kinda Late Show" at Riverside Studios for BBC3 Newcomers programme (2009), directed and produced the devised performance of Five Twosomes for the IYAF at The Rose Theatre Kingston (2010). His script Pinky Promise reached the top three at the Nivea Moments of Closeness Competition (2011).

Andrade has a taste for Brazilian soap operas, dysfunctional families and cybernetic punk-drag dramas. He wants to see beyond 50 shades of grey on stage and at the silver screen, including the pretty, the kinky and the downright nasty tones.
