The Vagrancy Company Member

February 2017

Erica is honored to be selected as a company member of The Vagrancy, an LA-based theatre company. 

The Vagrancy creates visceral work that seeks to touch the human spirit.  We embrace fear, vulnerability, and embarrassment – inviting the audience to experience a communion.  We hope to spark a dialogue of questions and compassion, exposing a shared universal truth.  We forge new, lesser-known, and classical works with that ineffable something. Duende.​
