BIOGRAPHY

Emily Orme is a movement director, choreographer and teacher based in London and the South West. She completed her BA (Hons) in Contemporary Dance at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance where she developed her ability to create and devise movement. She has choreographed, movement directed, assisted, and performed in numerous professional productions across the country.  These include assisting  on a non-verbal children's production with Winter Walker Theatre Company to movement directing a physical theatre adaptation of the novel 'The Enchanted' at The Bunker in London. A qualified yoga instructor, she has a holistic and developed knowledge of movement, use of breath and full body expression. In her current work with Good Chance and Chickenshed, she has gained experience in inclusive theatre practice, in forming movement ensembles with performers of mixed ages and abilities as well as with professional actors.

As a movement director, Emily is interested in creating performances that are accessible to wider audiences, telling authentic, urgent stories that need to be shared. Collaboration with actors, directors and the entire creative team is an integral part of Emily’s process as she enriches a narrative with physical language. To all her work, she brings an intuition for movement possibilities and a compassionate collaborative approach. She is developing and refining these skills as she completes the MA Movement: Directing and Teaching at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
