Add ability to trigger component variant change from outside component

A use case for this:

I have a fullscreen modal component with the props: isVisible: true | false.
I’d love to be able to click a button (from outside the component) in the parent frame and have it trigger the modal to be visible: true. Additionally, I’d love for it to use any animations I’ve predefined in that component for changing from variant x -> variant y for the transition (I understand this is complicated if there are multiple triggers set up internally, but it could default to using the first or something).
