Inventor of the Fire Trapeze

Erinina Marie Ness is the inventor of the fire trapeze and a performance artist and writer living in NYC. She is also a theater director, physical theatre performer, teacher of the arts and craft maker (or you know, you’re general hustling, starving artist). She is a 2005 graduate of Sarah Lawrence College and has her own upcycled craft line that she calls Cirque Couture. She is currently performing aerial dance (with a preference for the static trapeze), multimedia installation and working on traveling the world. She enjoys reading, visual art, science, hiking, rowing, literature and exciting new things.

THEATER

Erinina studied writing and theater at Greensboro College and then Sarah Lawrence College, where she graduated in 2005. She also studied theatrical performance at Oxford School of Drama's Summer Programme in 2001 and received Irene Ryan nominations for her performance work in 2000. Her performance style relies heavily on physical theater influences in Laban and Viewpoints technique integrated with burlesque, experimental, aerial and multimedia components.

MIR PRODUCTIONS

From 2006-2008, Erinina founded and ran her own company, Mir Productions in NYC. Working with an amazing artistic team, Mir Productions managed to nurture seven new, full-length works, expose audiences to little read playwrights from diverse cultures, and with the help of the Israeli Consulate, bring Yosef bar Yosef to the US to tour four Ivy League colleges in 2008.

AERIAL ARTS

Always one to climb the scaffolding or the subway bars, a rockface or a random tree, in 2008 Erinina finally took her performance skills to the air. She has trained with Circus Warehouse, Rachel Walker, Scott Combs, Harvest Moon and Cody Shreger. In addition, she has had the privilege to perform with Big Sky Works, Streb, The Muse, Gowanus Ballroom, Burning Man, Gemini & Scorpio, the Espana family, Oxheart Collective and more.

ERININA LOVES STATIC TRAPEZE, FIRE TRAPEZE & SILKS.

ERININA HATES APPLE FLAVORING. NOW YOU KNOW.
