Emma Dalen is a Minneapolis native currently attending the University of Minnesota Twin Cities where she is pursuing a B.A. in Theatre Performance. Her interests are varied and continue to widen as new things are experienced through the University setting. Passions have included creative collaborations with local theaters and playwrights, performing Shakespeare outside in 90 degrees while covered in mosquitos, and the MN Fringe Festival. Emma takes an active role in the Twin Cities theater community as a volunteer with the Ivey Awards and was a member the Hennepin Theatre Trust's Critical View program for all four years of high school. When not in class, on a stage, or watching a performance she can be found knitting, reading, or making burritos. Her long term goal is to be the first female Artistic Director of the Guthrie.
