Eric Avery

Eric Avery is a writer, performer, and creator with over fifteen years of experience in theatre, immersive performance, and community-based art. Avery’s wide ranging freelance creative practice has utilized: puppets, buildings, food, improvisation, song, installation, participation, travel, humor, text, time, imagination, algorithms, honesty, and tape. An emphasis on relationship-centered work has extended Eric’s work beyond theaters and galleries and into collaborations with/inside: non-profits, social service agencies, farms, community centers, schools, prisons, and houses. Avery’s intersectional feminist approach to art and life is largely informed by the experience of living in a queer black body in a society at odds with both of those identities. Avery earned an MFA in Theatre Arts from Towson University in 2013. More at efranklin.tv
