The performance will be followed by a post show discussion, giving the audience the opportunity to learn more about the artist and the work.
Originally from Gretna, Emma Jayne Park founded Cultured Mongrel in 2014 as a means to invite people to work with her not for her.

Emma is currently Associate Artist with the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival and is dedicated to the development of dance across Dumfries and Galloway.
