Palm To Palm – The Art Of Holding Hands
Sat 03 Nov 2012
High Street Exhibitional Gallery
Would you hold hands with me? Not because you love me or must take care of me or because I’m in distress. Would you hold hands with me just because I asked you to?
Join Louise and take part in her daily challenge – to hold someone’s hand for 30 minutes. Louise is doing this every day in 2012 and for SPILL she will gently guide you through a dangerous theatrical exploration of Britain’s seemingly touch-deprived culture.
A Glasgow based performance artist Louise has created bespoke performances and education packages for a multitude of spaces including Glasgow’s Barrowlands, the Tall Ship and The Tramway. She began working in 2009 as a performer with Nic Green on Part Two of her award winning production Trilogy which in 2010 toured to BAC, The Barbican, The Dublin Fringe festival and the Belfast International Festival. Louise is passionate about performance as a tool for social exploration and change, enabling us to invest in our collective and individual culture. Originally commissioned by Ovalhouse Theatre.
