Emma Martin crédit Ferdia Mooney lower

Emma Martin started out as a ballet dancer. As a choreographer her work spans dance, theatre opera and film. She creates multidisciplinary work often combining dance with live music, theatre, creating distinct visual universes with each piece, always with a raw style of dance as its heart. She’s interested in the friction between rawness and refinement, high art and popular culture, past and future, order and chaos, homage and intent. She graduated from the John Cranko School, in Stuttgart, and has a BA in Russian and Drama & Theatre Studies from Trinity College Dublin.

She made her first show in 2010, and now produces work through her company United Fall since 2018. Her most recent work includes King/ Shrine, Night Dances, Dolorosa, I AM IRELAND, Birdboy, Orfeo ed Euridice, Girl Song, Dancehall, Tundra. She is an Aerowaves 23 Artist, and United Fall is Company in residence at VISUAL, Carlow.

During her residency at the CCI in 2024, Emma will be researching and writing a new dance theatre piece to be produced in 2025.
