ERIN BRUBACHER is a multidisciplinary artist. She is driven by the desire to make meeting places: for her, art is a framework that serves to gather people who might not otherwise be in a room together. 

As a theatre director, EB works with writers, performers, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, and non-professionals to collaboratively make live experiences. Her award-winning work has taken her across the Americas, Europe and the UK, to contexts including The National Arts Centre (Ottawa), The Aga Khan Museum (Toronto), The Kitchen (NYC), Festival Internacional Cervantino (Mexico), The Edinburgh International Festival, The Belfast International Arts Festival, and Theater der Welt (Germany). Past directing projects include the award winning premier productions of Kiinalik: These Sharp Tools, Love You Wrong Time, and Concord Floral. She has a long history of leading performance projects that amplify teenage voices

EB is the author of the novel These Songs I Know By Heart (Book*hug, 2024), the co-author of the performance text/ travel memoire, 7th Cousins: An Automythography (Book*hug, 2019), and the poetry collection, In the small hours (Gaspereau Press, 2016). She has been a participant in commissioning programs and artist residencies including the Banff Playwrights Lab (Canada) and LIFT’s Concept Touring (UK). She holds a practice based MA International Performance Research, with distinction, jointly from the University of Warwick and University of Amsterdam. She has lived in ten cities, and now makes Tkaronto her home.
