BIO

Erin Pike (creator/performer) is a Seattle artist originally from Oregon, where she studied dance and theatre. Her new work is influenced by both mediums but exists outside of either category. Recent performances includes Her Score (Bryan Ohno Gallery),
SPD: Segway Patrol Dance (NEPO 5K Don’t Run), and Timing and Stain (2012 NWNW Festival). Additionally, Erin has worked as a theater artist with Pony World Theatre, Macha Monkey Productions, Washington Ensemble Theatre, 14/48: The World’s Quickest Theatre Festival, The Endangered Species Project, and Annex Theatre.

 

PERFORMANCE SYNOPSIS

Erin Pike assigned local playwright Courtney Meaker a challenge: write a one-person performance using only female dialogue from the most-produced plays in America. That’swhatshesaid is a brutal theatrical exercise in isolation. When a female character is left alone with no male protagonists to support, her behaviors gain both chaos and clarity, resulting in a concentrated dose of the modern theater’s intended role for women.
