‘Taken by the Hand’ is a collection of five worlds colliding for one unifying dance. Our movement represents time, its passage and its impact, our emotive performance is speckled with messages of community. As an opposition to the zeitgeist of youth, our film directly faces the topic of age. Its narrative celebrates our elders whilst hearing honest accounts of their place within today’s society and how their experiences with dance inform that. It is an unapologetic account of life, set to the backdrop of Tottenham. Screening followed by Q&A
