DANCER | CHOREOGRAPHER
Festival Dansblok Leiden asked Emma to create a short film using the old library in the world famous Leiden observatory. Starring represents the astronomy as well as the fellow females in the lives of women. The library symbolises the innocence, hopes and dreams that come with the mind of a little girl. The observatory symbolises how a woman becomes restricted as she gets exposed to judgement and expectations of society, as well as those by other women, who at the same time are an important source of support.
