Emelia Hutchinson

Director Facilitator

Theatre Director and Facilitator based in Oxfordshire.
I am an emerging director who is interested in telling new stories by new writers. I love to engage in form and character and push the boundaries of how traditional theatre works and what stories we can tell. More recently I have begun engaging with actor-muso work and am interested in developing my experience working on gig theatre and similar styles.

My work with young people involves engaging participants from a range of backgrounds with a range of abilities to devise work which they are proud of and speaks for them.
