Emily Davis has changed the way that I think about theater and its possibilities in the classroom and on the stage. I find her work as a writer, director, performer and teacher enormously creative, inspiring and inclusive. Knowing her has made me a better teacher and engaged me at a deeper intellectual level as an artist.
Emily’s ideas and lessons always demonstrate her deep understanding of a wide range of artistic works and approaches. From her I have learned to honor my artistic instincts, to challenge my assumptions about theatre and most importantly, to bring my artistic point of view to my teaching.
