About

What does your town look like from someone else's perspective? What's it like to hold hands with a complete stranger and walk through the city centre?

Performance art and mobile technology converge in Walking:Holding, a meditative documentary that journeys through urban landscapes exploring identity and intimacy in public space.

This film is a response to Glasgow based artist Rosana Cade’s award-winning interactive performance of the same name, which invites audience members to embark on a carefully designed route through a town whilst holding hands with a series of different local participants. Shot entirely on mobile phones, the film follows the performance to 6 towns across the UK - including Reading - between June and November 2016, bookended by the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump. This unique collaborative documentary offers an insight into the intimate work at a particularly poignant time in terms of identity politics, weaving together a range of perspectives and experiences from across the country. 

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