Emma Bergman is a performer, collaborator, artist, and facilitator based in Baltimore, MD. She recently graduated from the University of Michigan with a BFA in Interarts Performance.
Emma's work centers around collaboration and the distinct artistic languages that can exist within it. Call Your Mom is a multimedia making family that consists of Emma Bergman, E Cadoux, Sophie Goldberg, and Mia Massimino. The collective has been working together since 2014 to explore ideas of intimacy and communication and test the boundaries of relationships between audiences and performers.
Emma is also a digital storyteller interested in archiving personal histories. She created Life Histories of Hamtramck with Sarah Wilson in an effort to document the lives of 18 residents of Hamtramck, MI over the age of 50. The collection of audio interviews culminated in an online database and a community listening event.
She is an experienced arts workshop facilitator and has worked with a wide range of communities including students at the University of Michigan, inmates at a Michigan correctional facility, young children at a DC quaker elementary school, and high school students in Detroit, MI.
