Michael Emans

(1971 - 2021)

We have been touched by the messages of support and condolence at the loss of Michael Emans, our co-founder and Artistic Director.

Rapture Theatre was driven by the passion that Michael had for the power and relevance of theatre – and his commitment to sharing this as widely as possible with audiences across Scotland.

    Michael and I graduated from the same course in the same year at Rose Bruford. Both Scots these were the only things we had in common. We disagreed completely on how to create theatre and he told me as much. But I had absolute love and respect for the amazing work he did with Rapture. He told me he wanted to bring the West End to Scotland and I think he did that and more. Such a shame he left us so early because I think he was just getting started. I wish Rapture all the best in the future. If you carry the spirit, passion and kindness of Michael with you in all you do you can’t go wrong. I will carry him with me especially whenever I’m in a rehearsal room. My deepest condolences and all the love for your future.
