Emily’s choreographic work is powerfully articulate, often bringing personal subjects to life in a universal way with depth & daring.

Visually exciting, crafted & performed with a sensitivity that quietly encourages audiences to loose themselves in the rich movement and physical ideas brought to life with Emily’s vision through the dancers & artists she works closely with. Emily choreographs for stage, screen & site.



In My Head
(2019/20 )
An extraordinary experience of ordinary, everyday sound.

A new performance work highlighting hearing loss as an under discussed issue from both a personal & universal perspective. In My Head will be an interdisciplinary work directed & choreographed by Emily Alden, conceived with Catherine Lake. 

Currently in development, supported by an Arts Council England Developing Your Creative Practice grant.
