Emma Fishwick

Emma Fishwickis an emerging artist whose work takes numerous forms. Creatively curious and technologically driven her practice spans dance, visual-arts, digital media and the written word. Based in Perth, Emma graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) Honours (Dance) program LINK in 2010. In 2014 Emma collaboratively produced and performed her solo A dance with no home as part of the sold-out triple bill entitled Paperland during FringeWorld 2014. Paperland subsequently won FringeWorld’s 2014’s ‘Best Dance Show’ award. In 2014, Emma undertook a Department of Culture and the Arts WA Fellowship, which has enabled her to undertake multiple projects in Sydney, Berlin and Perth. During this time Emma created microLandscapes + A Dance in collaboration with Kynan Tan and Ella-Rose Trew, an interdisciplinary investigation into lineage of space, persons and practice.

Emma has also been awarded an Australia Council JUMP grant (2012); developed her own new media performance work Multiple Mobs of 1 (2012); performed her solo In-human at the ACT Festival in Bilbao Spain (2013) and choreographed inBetween for STRUT Dance’s double bill Prime Cuts (2014) .
