Emily Magorrian (*1991) has been living and working in Switzerland since 2014. I work as a director, pedagog, outside eye and as a performer. What interests me most is thinking about the stage as a place of public vulnerability: we go as an audience to be touched and we go as performers/directors to speak our truths. I see humour and pain as a world that go hand in hand with one another.

I love to work in the fields of the “experts of the everyday” or community theatre, or in children’s theatre.

I have had the pleasure of working with Staatsschauspiel Dresden, Bühne Aarau, Schlachthaus Theater Bern, Stadelhofen Theater and Sudpol Luzern as producers of my work.
