Jaimie Warren and Matt Roche collaborate with community
With the goal of creating unexpected and endearing experiences that local artists, underserved youth, and audiences can share, Whoop Dee Doo—an artist-led variety show co-directed by Jaimie Warren and Matt Roche—breaks down stereotypes between art and entertainment in a chaotic mix of cross-cultural and cross-generational collaboration.
“Whoop Dee Doo accomplishes everything that I would want to get out of an art experience,” says Warren, while Roche adds, “It’s the main source in my life for personal growth.”
