Promenade

Simon Cole and Jessica Taggart Rose are Promenade - interactive, co-created, walking and performance pieces that riff off place. The duo blend psychogeography, poetry and people’s stories to create unique experiences that engage and involve as they evolve.

A sense of play is at the heart of their work - word play, play acting and playing with ideas of time and place. Each workshop and performance creates a liminal, open-bordered and trusted space for people of different ages and experiences to find common ground, take on different perspectives and co-create imagined futures.
