Inspired by all forms of physical theatre, and as an alumnae of Ryerson University's Acting Program, Emily has a great passion for storytelling and developing characters through movement. In 2009, she co-founded Hercinia Arts Collective as a means to combine her passions into creative, theatrical circus work. Recently, Emily has also been exploring the aerial world through the lens of a camera, creating experimental films that combine aerial dance, narrative, and sometimes animation, with partner Evan DeRushie.
