Emily is a performer, theatre maker and teacher. She is a graduate of Ecole Jacques Lecoq, Paris (2003-2005) and Co-Artistic Director of Jammy Voo Theatre Company. Jammy Voo first received funding from Arts Council England in 2006 to make Something Blue (guest directed by Angela de Castro), which took place in pubs, theatre bars and an old cinema in rural Devon. Something Blue and their second show A Corner Of The Ocean have since gone on to receive critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe and have toured both nationally and internationally. Jammy Voo’s latest creation Birdhouse (a collaboration with Omar Elerian, Co-Artistic director Bush Theatre) completed a successful run at Assembly, Edinburgh Fringe 2013 (Total Theatre Award Nominated, ‘Deceptively sophisticated’- Lyn Gardner) and toured Spring 2014.
