Chapel Steet



Déda is a creative centre for dance, contemporary circus and outdoor work. The stunning building, located on Chapel Street, houses three professionally equipped dance studios,…

UNTITLED combines movement and theatre, staged choreography, and playful, improvised interactions. 

Emilyn faces queering and ageing with dark humour, undercut with moments of pathos. As she transforms between hunter and creature, therapist and diva, cruising and crumbling, a collage of personal stories and self-directed choreography emerge. This is interwoven with devised material created collaboratively with Heidi Rustgaard, Florence Peake and Joseph Mercier. 
This is Emilyn’s first solo work in 20 years. As a performing artist in her 8th decade, Emilyn welcomes the fears of endings, teasing with what it means to bow out, the irony of living in an old body and what’s real and what’s imagined.
