Éowyn Emerald & Dancers (ÉE&D) was founded in Portland, Oregon in 2011, by Canadian born choreographer Éowyn Emerald, the company relocated to Scotland in 2017. Employing technical virtuosity and emotionally complex storytelling, her work strives to communicate, challenge, and evoke a clearer picture of the relationships that unite us. Éowyn Emerald & Dancers have appeared five times at DanceLive (Aberdeen), three times at On the Boards (Seattle), Risk/Reward (Portland), J.A.W. at Portland Center Stage, DanceStages (Shanghai), ACT and FreshEdit (Dundee), Hidden Door (Leith) and five times at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to critical claim. Additionally, the company has presented five performance seasons in Portland. In her 2014 Fringe appearance, Éowyn was hailed by the Times as ‘a talent to watch,’ and her 2016 Fringe included 21 sold out performances. Éowyn is a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, she has received the RDA Monticello award, a NFAA A.R.T.S.
