Emma‘s research is about expressing the inner world of the performer in an authentic way. With the body as her biggest source of inspiration and an instinctive approach to movement she creates an intimate connection with the audience. After completing the first week of a two-week research period with scenographer Jolein Kop (@joleneheads) at @makershuistilburg, where they explored how a light landscape can become an extension of this inner world. Creating different atmospheres using light and movement, inspired by triggers from the outside world. How can the light become like a living organism in the space?
Now, she will continue her research at CLOUD Danslab focusing on the sound and movement aspect of the work. How much do external stimuli influence our inner world? How do they transform and echo inside us? What effect do they have on our being?
Emma aims to create a surreal world where we can immerse ourselves in this experience.
