Artist Statement

Many times in my life I have been told I am empathetic to a fault. I feel too much, too deeply. My consideration for others’ feelings and experiences outweighs my own. “Toughen up!” I’ve been told. “Your skin is too thin!”

I would’t have it any other way.

I believe that cultivating empathy is one true way we can improve the world we live in. I look around me and my heart aches. People are so isolated in their suffering. We have become a society in which we compare wounds. We look at each other say, “I see you hurting but let me tell you how what I am going through is worse” instead of simply saying, “I see you hurting.”

Empathy. That is why I believe in what I do as an actor. As I prepare for a role and step into the shoes of another human (or the occasional non-human…), I am growing my empathetic capacity. When we sit in the audience and see and hear stories told about worlds and experiences beyond what we have ever encountered, we are strengthening our empathy muscle.

How wonderful to be a part of an art form that is truly about improving the human condition.
How could I choose any other path?

Reviews

 
“Jerusalem” — with its authentic performances from a collection of young actors and some well-cast vets — is very strong indeed.
— Lisa Kennedy, The Denver Post
 
...sweet, but hovering, mom Genevra (an excellent Erica Fox)
— Sonya Ellingbow, Centennial Citizen
Erica Fox is completely convincing as Genevra, veering between meekness and murderously out-of-control rage
— Juliet Wittman, Westword
 
Erica Fox is sultry and sexy as Lady Caroline, but reveals a deeper pain
— Craig Williamson, North Denver Tribune
 
Fox is heartbreakingly flawed as Alice
— Adam Goldstein, Aurora Sentinel
