What does your town look like from someone else’s perspective? How intimate can you be with someone you’ve just met? 

Walking:Holding invites you to walk hand in hand with a series of very different local strangers around nearby streets, parks and alleyways. It is a participatory performance for one audience member at a time, offering a gentle meditation on identity, touch and intimacy in urban public space. 

Walking:Holding was first created in Glasgow in 2011 and has since toured extensively across the UK and internationally, working with local participants as performers in each location.

“Everyone acknowledged the astute provocation in Cade’s seemingly simple concept, with its flesh and blood challenge to prejudices, and it’s honouring of individuals and their differences” – The Herald‘

Walking: Holding’ is presented in partnership with Live Art Bistro.
