Neck and Neck

BY SIÔN PARKINSON
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 25, 2016

 Siôn Parkinson shares the gruesome yet fascinating history and characteristics of the ever-vital body part, the neck. With Siôn's comedic performance, this will be a presentation you won't want to miss. 

Siônis an artist, singer and producer. His performances often see him appearing in costume to invoke the voice of an animal, variously a burning elephant, a stuffed walrus, a lovelorn worm, and most recently a seal who talks and vomits. His work as a producer for Cape Farewell’s ‘Sea Change’ project took him to the Isle of Mull where he was Creative Director of Exhibitions for Comar, a role that in turn inspired his return to Dundee, the city in which he was born. He is producer of the inaugural Dundee Design Festival 2016. @sionparkinson
