2012 - present
Erin is currently in an extended period of research and development of a new, cinematic project. Originally conceived as a theatrical performance work, it is centered around a woman who gets copied so many times that the original version of herself vanishes. This project has been developed at the inaugural residency of the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance in 2015, and at a residency at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in 2016.
In collaboration with Esmeralda Kundanis-Grow (EKGROW), Erin has done cinematography for her short dance film, Self D i s t i l l a t i o n, which premiered at the Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema in 2016.
