ih-rot-ik is more than the brain child of dancer Erin Elizabeth and Bobby Gordon, it is born from their burning brains, hearts, and bodies. Channeling all of their creativity, from above and below the belt they use the page and the stage to explore the human experience through the holistically defined erotic. Through ballads and burlesque, text and tease, dactyls and dance, ih-rot-ik explores the urgently physical in an increasingly digital world. Erin Elizabeth is an international touring dancer, choreographer and artistic director. Bobby Gordon is a founding co-director of the Melrose Poetry Bureau, writer and teaches courses on performance for sexual health education at UCLA.
