E r y k a   D e l l e n b a c h (she/they)
is a Brooklyn based and Chicago bred filmmaker, choreographer, performer and teaching artist. Her embodied films and evocative, multidisciplinary performance works mine the complexities of femme relationships, sensuality, power and psychophysical thresholds. These thresholds she regards and navigates as malleable locations of consciousness.

She has worked with and performed in the works of an eclectic variety of dance/performance artists including  Atsushi Takenouchi, Tori Wränes, Tino Sehgal, Blair Thomas Puppet Theatre, Matty Davis & Eva Mag. Eryka has presented work at Movement Research at the Judson Memorial Church, Anthology Film Archives, Roulette Intermedium, Virginia Commonwealth University, Intuit Outsider Art Museum, The Art Institute Museum of Chicago, Defibrillator, Links Hall, No Nation Gallery, and internationally in Italy, Germany and Russia at the Shiryaevo Bienalle of Contemporary Art. She was selected as a 2020 filmmaker by Visible Poetry Project.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in Cultural Anthropology from the Universiy of Illinois at Chicago, and a master’s degree in Film, Video, New Media, Animation and Sound from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

She works as a choreographer, performer, artist teacher, performance documentarian, DP, camera operator, and contracted worker.

Arkansas, 2018-19


This collection of images was taken within personal interstices as well as on the field throughout the course of working on the multidisciplinary research project ‘Until it reached into our lives and destroyed the tranquility that we had‘. The project was initiated by Michael Maizels  in collaboration with Matty Davis and carried us to Mena, the Ouchita National Forest, active and bygone air runways, as well as up and down a 10,000 ft. vertical pathway out of a plane.
