Elizabeth Munn is an aerialist exploring new ways of storytelling through multi-disciplinary collaborations. After a career as a classical singer, she tried circus on a whim and was immediately hooked. As an aerialist she combines the discipline of her classical music training with her background in dance and physical theater.
A versatile artist, Elizabeth is equally at home in theater, nightlife and creating/producing devised work. Her new work UP ABOVE THE SKY WAITED, TOO, a collaboration with Aaron Sheehan, premiered in February 2023. Currently, she is co-producing The Underground Cabaret with Anver Entertainment. She created the evening length I CAN'T SLEEP, a collection of dance theater pieces developed and produced at Dixon Place. She sang, danced and performed all things circus in 2 Ring Circus' production of GODSPELL (Aerialist) at Arkansas Repertory Theater. She also produced We Want It Darker with co-creators Cassandra Rosebeetle and Jason Mejias. Elizabeth has performed frequently with Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, 2 Ring Circus and Lisa's Bright Ideas, and is a regular on the cabaret scene in New York. She is available for hire and collaboration.
