Beginning in public places, and culminating with a haunting and unusual musical performance, Glorious is an exchange with an audience, a call to take notice and a move towards the future.
Rajni Shah Projects have spent the last month meeting shoppers, dreamers and wanderers on Newcastle's streets, and have invited six of the people they met to create and perform the script you will hear tonight. Musicians from the Academy of Music and Sound, Gateshead, have re-imagined the Glorious score and will join the company to play their creation live on stage.
It's the first time all these people have gathered together. They invite you to share this one-off performance and experience with them.
