A Wollongong local, Emma has made circus performance her career. Initially specialising in hula hoops, Emma extended her skills through long hard hours of study in China. Her most awesome trick is riding a giraffe unicycle while throwing something balanced on one foot into a bowl balanced on her head! Emma is a woman of many talents, a versatile clown and teacher with growing experience as an Mistress of Ceremonies (MC). As her stage character, Tina Green, Emma MCed Portraits of WOW, providing funny and sensitive links between acts which ranged from lighthearted and silly to emotionally challenging. As Miss Wollongong she worked with stunt double, Nat Harris, setting everyone laughing at her flow of consciousness commentary to Nat on the lyra. Having directed a hoop and aerial act in the classes she teaches, she then had a quick change and joined in the energetically joyful Golden Gaytimes acrobalance act, the grand finale of the show. As well as teaching, Emma served on the Management Committee and as Training Coordinator in 2016.
