HEAVE Documentary

Join our Journey.

Pointed Arrow Performance is based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

We are interested in how places shape, define and inform a sense of self for the people that inhabit them.

Our current project ‘Yorkshire On-land Boating Club’ is a documentary film about our 2009 journey Heave. On it we pushed our Land Boat through the cities, villages and countryside Yorkshire on a 105 mile, 22 day, journey to explore the values of the region we live in. The documentary launches at the Emerge festival in 2011 and will tour into 2012.

The Yorkshire Onland Boating Club Documentary DVD is now available to buy through our website featuring Pointed Arrow's 100 mile boat-pushing journey through the cities, towns, villages and dales of Yorkshire. The DVD paints an extraordinary portrait of a people and the county in which they live.
You can buy the DVD securely through PayPal:
