A woman searches for the remains of her father, an ex-political prisoner, whose body has been stolen from its grave.

Led by a pack of dogs, she follows their trail and uncovers the truth about his disappearance.

Written as theatrical magic realism, Danse, Morob raises key questions around the legacy and cost of radical revolutionary action.

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray.
