  • “Ingenious”
    Laura Molzahn Chicago Reader (Critics Choice)
  • “Erica is a fierce performer and art maker able to conduct rigorous research, speak articulately to her process and create performance steeped within this process without losing the heart and humor of her artistic vision and aesthetic”

  • “Erica‚Äôs work re-imagines form, performance, and how we might bridge aesthetics and societal constructs. Her work defies labels. Instead of allowing her work to be limited by the boxing of venues, she expands her notion of what a venue might be. Nothing is wasted. Everything is invention-embodied.”
    Sharon Bridgforth, New Dramatists Resident Playwright and Academic. Editor of Experiments in a Jazz Aesthetic.
