The Call awarded Activate Performing Arts Bursary

Emilie has been awarded a Dorset Performance Makers Bursary from Activate Performing Arts to support the development for her first choreography project, The Call. First staged at Motus Dance’s ADJUSTMENTS Platform in 2019, The Call is a solo dance and physical theatre performance. The creative development bursary of £500 will go towards voice research & development and costuming

The Call follows a narrative theme of fear and human nature directly drawing on myths and symbolism of ‘The Wolf’. Ultimately a transformation, myths such as ‘La Loba’, a woman who collects bones to raise wolves from the dead are explored.

Emilie developed The Call most recently as a Visiting Artist at Pavilion Dance South West (2019 & 2020) alongside being accepted to take part in the Young Choreographers South West Programme & residencies (2018-20). The concept was nurtured at The Dance Research Studio, London (2017-18).
