Support Homo Novus!

Walking:Holding is a subtle, experiential performance that invites you to walk hand in hand with a series of strangers around the city to discover it anew. Designed for one audience member at a time the piece asks people to challenge prejudices in the flesh, and experience first hand what it is to walk in someone elseʼs shoes – or hands. 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.

Walking:Holding Riga version is created in collaboration with theatre maker Katrīna Dūka.
