Director Erica Vannon is drawn to the kind of work that makes you “giggle into a bit of horror.” Or stand up and scream like you’re at a football game. Or cry (a lot (if you’re me)). She produces the impossible, like a devised opera performed in a hotel room or a 3 minute dance piece with 47 performers.
I sat down with Erica and talked to her about her previous work, how she ends up working with so many wonderful women, and her upcoming project, GENDER BREAKDOWN opening at Collaboraction February 16th.
