Emma Miriam Berentsen is a performer, performance maker and artist born in The Netherlands in 1987. In 2015 she graduated from the MA in Performance Making at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is been awarded with the Dutch VSB Fund and the Prins Bernhard Culture fund to finance this MA. Her work is varied as she has been working both on developing her own creative practice as working for community based theatre companies and in the field of theatre education. Most of her work is based on (auto) biographical material and the transformation of this material into diverse forms of theatre, performances and installations. She is interested in working on the edge of non-fiction and fiction and the boundaries of the medium of theatre.
Lately she has been doing several projects around Death and Dying and organized a few so called ‘Last Supper’ nights – a performative dinner – She is planning to host some more in London at the end of August this year and would be happy to invite you all. Please get in touch if you’d be interested.
Emma previously presented work at several festivals and venues such as Venice Biennale (IT) Over ‘t IJ Festival, Amsterdam (NL), GIFT Festival, Gateshead (UK), ACT Festival, Bilbao (SP) The Nursery Festival, London (UK), ArtsAdmin, London (UK) Frascati, Amsterdam (NL) and Theatre Delicatessen, London (UK).
