Emma Jayne Park takes us through learning to navigate having multiple motivations, and embracing your inner mongrel. She shares her experience of dancing and exploring both the internal and external pressures in ourselves, that often conflict with each other.

Carrying the innate values of hip hop culture whilst exploring new territories in dance theatre, Emma Jayne makes socio-political performances with the intention of creating genuine dialogue.

‘High Octane… energetic, witty & playful’ (The Skinny), her practice asks audiences to engage through questioning their own social norms and their consequences.

Founding her company, Cultured Mongrel, as a means for her practice to impact the sector beyond simply touring work, she actively explores people centred participation, developing methods of social innovation within the arts and reducing stigma as an Associate Artist with The Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival.
