Erin Drummond is an interdisciplinary artist, director, choreographer and teacher. She creates performance works in places ranging from the Sonoran Desert to her own studio and continues to be interested in the body’s communicative power within the complexities of place, using movement research as a catalyst for personal, political and environmental change. Her work often explores mystery and the unknown, drawing philosophical and physical inspiration from forces of nature. She has performed and collaborated with numerous artists, companies and collectives nationally and internationally, including Robin Stiehm's Dancing People Company, Rosy Simas Danse, Coco Karol, K.J. Holmes, J. H. Shuǐ Xiān, Leyya Mona Tawil, and the Minnesota Opera. Her choreography has been presented at venues in Minneapolis, NYC, Vancouver, University of the South Pacific (Samoa), and for the United Nations in Bangkok. She is a professor at Winona State University and an active freelance artist based in Winona/Keoxa, Minnesota/Mne Sota Makoce, Dakota Land. She holds a BA from Columbia University and an MFA in dance through Hollins University, in collaboration with institutions in Frankfurt, Germany.
