    Additional Information

    "Whole", is a profoundly moving exploration about what it takes to go it alone in the wake of tremendous loss and grief. Emma is a consummate performer, warm and honest, and her writing sparkles effortlessly before cracking our hearts." -Haley McGee Solo theatre lab

    Reviews from National Tour of one woman show 'No Surrender' Spring 2016:

    "A well composed and edited, beautifully performed and fluently directed piece of story telling" Fraser Grace (writer of Breakfast With Mugabe -RSC)

    "The entire audience hung on every word spoken by the brilliant Emma Spearing. Her performance was electrifying"

    I worked as a Chartered Physiotherapist in the NHS for over 10 years. Qualified Pilates teacher and mother of a teenager.

    About me

    2020: Currently writing my first solo show, 'Whole' which received Arts Council Funding for R+D in 2019. The piece is autobiographical and explores the subjects of death and grief. I won a development award from Cambridge Junction to support this piece to its completion. Artist in residence at Metal Southend in Feb 2020. Shortlisted by Wildcard and 1927 Productions for mentorship and support. 'Whole' was being showcased by HighTide at Latitude July 2020 in their emerging theatre makers for the East of England showcase. It was also due to premiere at Cambridge Junction in October 2020. Unfortunately due to Covid all has been cancelled / Arts Council funding has been suspended. This is obviously an incredibly challenging time for all actors and theatre makers.

    As an actor I have an MA in Acting from E15 Acting School (Distinction). I work regularly as a voice over artist, devise and create my own work, and have filmed a number of short films and two feature films (Red Call in which i play the lead, won Best Feature Film at The Wales International film Festival 2018.) The Silence After Life in which I play the main supporting artist has been selected for the Ramsgate international film festival and Brighton Rocks film festival. Both in the summer of 2020. I am passionate about training and exploring my art. I love devising new work, and have also spent much time exploring clowning with the likes of Jamie Wood, SpyMonkey, Mick Barnfather, and Peta Lily. As well as having taken workshops with companies such as Frantic Assembly, Complicite, Told by an Idiot, Haley McGee and Bryony Kimmings.

    I have a lot of role play experience, working for companies such as Medical Role-Players, The Method, Simpatico, and Cambridge University medical school.

    Additional skills are static Trapeze and aerial hoop to an intermediate level. I also sing. I'm a confident soloist Mezzo Soprano with a rich sound, and can accompany myself on the guitar.

    I am looking to collaborate with companies and artists, to explore the depths and create meaningful work.
