Erin DiIorio (EH-rin dee-OR-ee-oh) was born and raised in central Jersey, but is currently based in NYC. Drawn to tales of danger, dark humor, and love in all the wrong places, DiIorio creates and performs richly textured stories of the unique and uncanny, influenced by an amalgamation of mediums ranging from comic books to stop-motion animation to classical text. Of her work, DiIorio says, "I value independence and find beautiful melancholy in the intricacies of my experiences. I make my own rules, and embody a kind of neo-realism through which my intuition proves to be my guide. People don't always understand the method to my madness, but they do recognize and uphold their trust in my efficacy." She is executive director and founding member of the devised theatre ensemble Alcohol, Honey, & Shit.
