Gemma is the founder of Immerse Drama. Trained in Contemporary Theatre in Manchester, UK, Gemma has been teaching drama from a young age at 16. Today, Gemma continues to follow her passion as an Actor, Writer and Director and enjoys imparting her knowledge by teaching all ages.
Immerse Drama ran classes in Manchester for 7 years, with ages 4–16, and 6 different classes, reaching maximum capacities and devising work for performance. It was a shame to let it go!
Now running in Melbourne, classes are starting to build for both children and adults with an excellent array of teachers as well as Gemma herself.
13Theatre is Gemma’s Theatre company and was formed at university where they devised and produced a show for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Gemma has continued her work in England and Australia, with a Devising Course last year for Melbourne Fringe!
After university, she worked in Italy with ACLE, performing and teaching workshops in English and then trained as a drama specialist working in schools across the UK for a full year with Artis Education.
Then working freelance, Gemma has since taught all ages in all environments from schools and community centres to prisons. Gemma has also worked in roleplay and continues to pursue her own creative career as an Actor, Writer and Director.
