So far in 2021, she co-created Skin, a new performance piece with the interdisciplinary company The Bakery, directed a digital staged reading of Behaviour by Darrah Teitel, and co-directed the audio play The Ringtone by Audrey Dwyer in April. Just last year, Emma was the recipient of the Elliott Hayes Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dramaturgy.
