Lemon Andersen

The Gammage Residency

Creating a home for the world's finest performers

The ASU Gammage Residency is a program that supports an exceptional performing artist for an extended period of time to engage in campus and community settings, create new work, teach, perform and essentially become a member of the ASU and Phoenix Metro communities. 

Lemon Andersen is an artist like no other. A Brooklynite with roots in Puerto Rico, he is equally at home creating with household names such as Spike Lee-Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It series, Lebron James’ production company, Nike marketers and Hollywood studios as he is performing solo at the New York Public Theater or with his fellow Tony Award-winners in Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam. What really sets Lemon apart, however, is this remarkable mix of talents combined with his passion for teaching and mentoring young people. Throughout the 2019-2020 academic year, Lemon will perform, teach and model excellence and connect communities on and off ASU campuses.
