My name is Emmi Hilger (she/her), and I am a theatre director, educator, and producer based in Chicago, IL. I'm also a mother, which is one of my life's great joys.
I love new plays and nurturing young artists. I love imagination and magical realism. I seek to lift up marginalized voices. I am a lifelong learner.
I care about people and believe in the power of empathy; as an artist, I choose pieces that make us vulnerable and give a glimpse into a character's heart. As a leader, I work hard to contribute to spaces and processes that empower artists and value their true selves.
