About

Elaine Mitchener Projects is a vehicle for researching, developing and producing work conceived by Elaine Mitchener. To date EMP has produced and staged a number of works including Of Leonardo Da Vinci (2015), Industrialising Intimacy (2015), Sweet Tooth (2016), [NAMES] (2016) and I back…I neck… I face… I chest… (2016).

Works researched, developed and produced by EMP arise out of Elaine’s philosophy of encounter-enact-engage, and combine found texts, sound, movement, vocalization, improvisation, and collaboration to create intimate and experimental music theatre performance pieces. Underlining Elaine’s interest in collaboration, EMP have included commissioned work by composer George Lewis, sound artist David Toop, film maker Barry Lewis, historian Christer Petley, and choreographer Dam Van Huynh.
