Emma Frankland

Writer

Emma is an award winning theatre maker and performer.

In recent years her work has been focussed on issues around gender, identity and politically motivated performances. She is the director of None of Us is Yet a Robot - a contemporary performance company that create groundbreaking performance work based on transgender identities & the politics of transition.

Her most recent piece, Rituals for Change, is a live art/theatre performance that explores the body and the felt experience of change through a series of devised rituals.

“This is a private, beautiful, evocative piece of theatre. It is story-telling at its simplest and bravest” Liz Allum, British Theatre Guide

She has created a diverse collection of work and was featured in the British Council Showcase at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival with an anarchic adaptation of ʻDon Quijoteʼ. The show won the Wildfire Critic’s Choice award at the 2014 Ignite festival and has toured the UK & internationally, appearing in Rio de Janeiro at Festival del Tempo.

Emma is an associate artist with Coney and has collaborated with them on many occasions, hosting several provocative salon debates and performing as "Henri" in the revival of A Small Town Anywhere at BAC

She is also a regular collaborator with Chris Goode and Company and works as guest performer or dramaturg for other artists and companies including: Jamie Wood, Camden People’s Theatre, Rachel Mars, Old Salt Theatre, Pink Fringe, Rachael Clerke, The Frequency D’ici and Wild Works.

She is a two-time Fringe First award winner and Total Theatre Award nominee. Throughout her work, there is a shared theatrical language that focuses on honesty, action & a playfully destructive DIY aesthetic.
