Waking:Holding film premiere

Waking:Holding film premiere


Performance art and mobile technology converge in Walking:Holding, a meditative documentary that journeys through urban landscapes, asking questions about identity and intimacy in public space. PLEASE BOOK YOUR PLACE AT THE PREMIERE SCREENING OF THIS FILM ON OUR WEBSITE. []

This film is a response to Rosana Cade []’s award-winning interactive performance of the same name. Shot entirely on mobile phones, the film follows the performance to 6 towns across the UK, beginning in June 2016 and finishing in Leeds at Compass Festival in November 2016. The performance invites solo audience members to embark on a carefully designed route through a town whilst holding hands with a series of different local participants.

The team are looking forward to coming back to Leeds for the premiere screening of Walking:Holding, followed by a discussion with the artists and participants involved.

Supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and supported using public funds by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
