Emma is a movement artist who has dedicated her life to the study and practice of physical expression. She works as a director, choreographer, teacher, consultant, activist and mother to connect people with each other so that we may rise up together.
Emma specializes in communication, with the human being at the center of her work. Whether in the studio, or on the street, she endeavors to build connections between people. Humor and the human body are her primary tools for storytelling and peacemaking. She uses the vehicle of theater to create greater presence of mind and body, helping people to listen deeply and cultivate compassion both onstage and off.
