Glorious is a haunting and unusual new musical completely reinvented for every location, as members of the local community work with Rajni Shah Projects to create the final event.
Following performances in Nottingham, London, Newcastle and Mons (Belgium), Rajni Shah Projects will make Lancaster their home this autumn, meeting people on the streets and inviting them to create and perform their own monologues for this version of Glorious. Meanwhile, a team of local musicians will make their own unique versions of the Glorious songs which they will perform live.
"Those lives we were glimpsing? They were our lives. Those parties and arguments and anxieties and houses are ours... that is what Shah shows us, and that is the gift she offers us. Don't be frightened of life, she reminds us. It's all we have.” Maddy Costa, review of Glorious at SPILL 2011, Barbican London
Co-commissioned by Spill Festival at the Barbican, Live at LICA, Wunderbar Festival and Inbetween Time Productions.
