Emma Martin / United Fall


Led by dance maker Emma Martin, United Fall's work is known for its ambitious multidisciplinary work of a highly visual and atmospheric nature.

Emma began creating shows in 2010, following a sabbatical as a ballet dancer during which she obtained a degree in Drama and Theatre Studies and Russian from Trinity College, Dublin. 

She creates work that often combines dance, live music, theatre and distinct visual universes, always with the raw expression of dance as it’s driving force. 

Recent works include: Night Dances (2021, co-production with Dublin Theatre Festival), I AM IRELAND (2020 RTE/ Culture Night Commission) Birdboy (2019), Orfeo ed Euridice (Irish Tour 2019, Galway International Arts Festival 2018), Girl Song (Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival (Groningen) 2018, Dublin Theatre Festival 2017. A co-production with both festivals), Dancehall (a co-production with Dublin Theatre Festival 2015), Tundra (a commission from Dublin Dance Festival, in a co-production with Centre de Développement Chorégraphique, Toulouse 2014).

United Fall is Associate Artist both at Visual Centre for Contemporary Art and of Dance Ireland and receives strategic funding from the Arts Council.
