SHE - HER
Emma would describe herself best as a Roller Coaster Evangelist,
a Lover of Silly Dances, and a Corny Joke-Teller Extraordinaire.
Emma is a queer disabled creative artist, writer, actor, director, and educator. She is a certified Lessac Practitioner for Body & Voice, Disability and Accessibility advocate and researcher, a Theatrical Intimacy Choreographer, and Trauma-Informed Consent-Based Practitioner certified in Mental health First Aid.
After earning her MFA in Theatre Performance in 2015
and teaching at the university level, Emma spent several years traveling the United States making theatre with young people between the ages of 5 and 18. After her mighty sojourn, Emma returned to her hometown of Atlanta to get back to work in experimental theatre (or as she lovingly calls it, “the weird shit”).
Her current field of research examines the relationship of chronic pain to art and performance. She is deeply focused on developing robust equitable, inclusive, and antiracist practices and pedagogies, as well as doing the difficult work of unlearning the lies of urgency and scarcity in the entertainment industry.
To date, Emma has been to 49 of the 50 states,
and she maintains that buffalo sauce is the nectar of the gods.
