Glorious

An archive of highlights from the Glorious People social network, 2010-2013

In 2009, Rajni Shah Projects began creating a new piece of musical theatre called Glorious. Each time Glorious was performed, the company worked with a new set of local musicians and residents.;xNLx;;xNLx;From 2010 to 2013, the project was accompanied by a private social network for participants, supporters and other family to gather and share photos, blog posts, snippets of music and memories. About 5% of the material from this online network has now been translated into this publicly accessible timeline.;xNLx;;xNLx;To read more about the Glorious project, please visit: ;xSTx;a href="http://www.rajnishah.com/glorious";xETx;www.rajnishah.com/glorious;xSTx;/a;xETx;.;xNLx;

How does it feel? - Workshop in Newcastle

As part of the development process for Glorious we will be working with ten participants in a free three-day workshop at a Newcastle city centre venue during the early evenings of November 10th, 11th and 12th, ending with an informal celebratory performance on the last evening. Participants will work with Rajni and her collaborators to create short simple performances based on autobiographical material, using a combination of voice, text and objects. Workshop participants need not have prior experience in any of these areas; each participant will be able to work with the areas that interest him/her most. Participants will be broadly responding to the question: "How does it feel to be alive today?" This workshop is not for professional artists - enthusiasm and curiosity are all that's required. The workshop will be led by Rajni Shah with costume designer Lucille Acevedo-Jones and performer Sheila Ghelani
