Erin Ellen Kelly trained with Butoh masters Ko Murobushi, Takuya Muramatsu, Tetsuro Fukuhara, and Diego Pinon and employs techniques from Butoh, qigong, gymnastics, farming, cabaret dancing, and performance action-theater to create new works, ways of moving, and performance installation pieces that comment on the human condition and its relationship to the environment and society. As a founding member of the multidisciplinary, multimedia collective RansomCorp, active from 1999-2002, she toured warehouse spaces across the U.S. and Europe and created commissioned work for LaMama in New York and Schloss Broellin in Germany. As a dancer she has performed for choreographers including Erika Hassan, Tetsuro Fukuhara, Atsushi Takenouchi, and Takuya Muramatsu and at venues including Theater for the New City and the New York Butoh Festival. As a choreographer and solo performer, she has created and collaborated on site-specific dance performances in gardens, galleries, warehouse spaces, boats, and theaters in the U.S, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and Thailand. Her solo performances have been presented by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Miami, Kultur im Spannwerk in Berlin, and Pseudo, the Cave Gallery, the HOWL Festival, and Movement Research at Judson Church in New York.
