About the masterclass facilitator:

Emma Beech graduated from Flinders Drama Centre in 2000 and has worked in theatre and screen establishing a practice developing theatre shows from conversations with strangers, talking about subjects from the sad to the sublime. Emma was a resident artist with immersive theatre company Carte Blanche in Denmark from 2006 to 2004, set-up by visual arts and theatre practitioner, Sara Jenson. There, Emma co-developed and performed in six of Carte Blanche’s new works.

Emma has worked with The Last Tuesday Society, Real TV, Patch, Monkey Baa, Playwriting Australia, Arts House, Open Space Contemporary Arts, State Theatre Company South Australia, The Rabble, and has an on-going relationship with Vitalstatistix who developed and produced Saskia Falls. She has participated in several Adhocracy festivals, and her 2016 work with the company, Life is Short and Long, an investigation into the GFC in Barcelona, Spain & Wirrabara, South Australia, was a significant production for Vitals. In 2017, Emma was Vitalstatistix’s resident artist, and in 2018 she had a residency with State Theatre Company South Australia before performing in their 2019 season of Jasper Jones.

Emma is a proud founding member of the Australian Bureau of Worthiness, with Tessa Leong and James Dodd, a residency model that creates theatre from interviews conducted with people on the street, asking ‘What makes your day worth it?’ The ABW has now met nine towns, the last being I Met Gumeracha in 2018.
