Emily Laursen graduated as a member of the 2020 cohort of Dance at the VCA. Emily is based in Narrm and is concerned with improvisational modes which access rigorous conscious thought and heightened visceral states.
Emily is currently engaging with writing which removes dance from the body and places it elsewhere in order to question the impetuous of movement potential. Emily was a member of Yellow Wheel from 2015-2018, in which they worked with Israel Aloni & Lee Brummer (‘Reset’, 2018) and Philip Adams & Gregory Lorenzutti (‘Paradise’, 2018). Emily created their own work titled ‘People in the Kitchen’ in 2018 and was a performer in ‘Dark Points’ by DIANGLE in 2019. Emily was the recipient of the Philip Adams Award in 2020.
