Emma

Wade

Actor, puppeteer, director, and teacher–Raised in rural Vermont, Emma is a graduate of Smith College with a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Italian Language and Literature.  Since, following a passion for narrative and physical theater, she found herself in the Hudson Valley mentoring under puppeteer, visual artist, and scholar Nathaniel Williams, where she studied speech, and gesture theory applied to experimental puppet construction and performance.  She has since collaborated on productions with Nathaniel through the Free Columbia Puppet Theater. She has played as a freelance puppeteer and  puppet builder with Bread and Puppet Theater, Ink Fish,  and Basil Twist. She has appeared at La MAMMA, Labapalooza Puppet Lab at St. Ann’s Warehouse, Mettawee River Theatre's Halloween Extravaganza at St. John the Divine and NACL. 

 

In the Hudson Valley Emma was introduced to Michael Chekhov Acting Technique through Master teachers’ Fern Sloan and Ted Pugh.  Since finding M. Chekhov’s work in 2014,  Emma has pursued study of the Michael Chekhov Technique with teachers such as Lenard Petit, Joanna Merlin, Fern Sloan, Ted Pugh and many others. Emma is currently grateful to be a mentee of Lenard Petit in NYC and helps to manage programming at the Michael Chekhov Studio, NYC.

 

Dabbler of dance forms. Emma loves study of the body in movement and it’s relation to people’s sense of self and cultural well being. She takes a particular fascination in social dance and folk culture traditions. This may have began dancing in an West African dance troupe as a kid or discovering American contra dance as a teenager. Recently she has fallen for Appalachian feet percussion and Old-Time Claw-Hammer Banjo.
