ERIN GARBER-PEARSON is an interdisciplinary artist, performer, and educator originally from Tucson, AZ. Her interests and skills encompass metal fabrication, video editing, costuming, and a range of circus arts. She has given up trying to categorize.
Garber-Pearson received a Master of Fine Arts with an emphasis in 3D from the University of Arizona in 2011 and completed the Aloft Full Time Training program in Chicago where she specialized in Tightwire and Aerial Rope. Her studio practice is a mix of objects, embodied movement, and a lot of unusual equipment.
In 2012 Erin founded the Birds Eye View Circus studio in her current home, Toledo, Ohio. She teaches various circus arts to youth and adults, while directing, choreographing, and producing full-length shows in the beautiful domed theater of the Collingwood Art Center. You can also find her teaching at The Ann Arbor Aviary. She continues to recruit artists of all backgrounds into her art and performance schemes.
