Erin McNulty presenting 'Headlines'

Headlines is a solo performance project rooted in text from the daily news. Created by collecting words and excerpts from the media over a period of 10 days, transforming each tidbit into movement and gesture, and collating the pieces into a cohesive whole, Headlines is an abstract reaction in movement to the current news consumer experience.

About the Choregrapher
Erin McNulty is a Boston-based contemporary dance artist and educator. Her work is deeply rooted in improvisational research, and balances vulnerability and intimacy with her own blend of physicality. A 2011 Boston University graduate, Erin most recently studied at Trinity Laban Conservatoire where she earned a Postgraduate Diploma in Community Dance, with Distinction, in 2016. She was a principal dancer with Kairos Dance Theater from 2011-2015, and has also performed in projects with Callie Chapman/Zoe Dance, Kelley Donovan & Dancers, Paula Josa-Jones/Performance Works, and Bethan Peters. Her choreography has been presented by Trinity Laban, NACHMO Boston, Salem Arts Festival, Sasso & Company, RAW Artists, Providence College Dance Company, and Third Life Studio Choreographer Series. She has continued her artistic development through local classes and workshops as well as the 2017 Gaga/Batsheva Summer Intensive at Mark Morris Dance Center in New York.

She is currently freelancing as a performer and developing her own projects, including choreographing and producing a short dance film with filmmaker Christopher Di Nunzio (coming Fall 2018) with support from NEFA's New England Dance Fund. Erin is a Lead Teaching Artist with Boston Ballet's Education & Community Initiatives, and has also taught classes and workshops for LINX Dance Studio, Wilmington Dance Academy, Arts at the Armory (Youth Arts Arise), Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, and Cambridge Performance Project. ​
