I'm Emma, and I'm a London-based theatre-maker and performer.
I like to make work that explores social issues through playful, innovative, and often audience-centric means.
I love to create through games, and I take play very seriously. I believe adults should have more opportunities to be silly.
I'm interested in liveness - in doing something real with or in front of an audience, and creating idiosyncratic experiences together. Since 2020, I have become increasingly interested in taking work outside of theatre spaces. Which is just as well really.
Having previously made theatre as a playwright, actor and director, I now combine all three to devise work, either collaboratively or as a solo artist.
With collaborators in Hatch It Theatre and the Same Same Collective, I have taken shows to VAULT Festival in London (drop dead gorgeous, 2020), Brighton Fringe (How To Make Me Happy, 2018) and the Edinburgh Fringe (Whalebone, 2017).
Outside of theatre, I have worked with young people for over a decade, in youth clubs, on summer schemes, and in schools. I currently volunteer with Our Second Home, a youth movement helping refugees and asylum seekers to thrive in the UK.
