Coventry City of Culture - FAITH
SAT 11 SEP
VARIOUS LOCATIONS IN COVENTRY CITY CENTRE & LIVE STREAMED ONLINE
Booking is now open for Faith - a co-production between the Royal Shakespeare Company and Coventry City of Culture Trust with City Voices and Coventry faith communities.
Faithis an invitation to explore big questions through the beliefs of people of faith and of non-religious world views, through music, theatre, installation, and ritual. The day culminates in an extraordinary Ceremony of Light, a chance for the city to come together to experience the power and multiple meanings of light. Read on to find out how you can take part.
You can experience the Faith project in lots of different ways; you can visit one of the faith centres taking part in Open House throughout the day on Saturday, follow the ribbon route through the city between the participating faith centres, book for one or more of the live promenade shows, or join in the Ceremony of Light on Saturday evening. The plays tell the stories of important moments in everyday life – from birth to love to death and how Coventry families find the faith to get through them, and find joy and hope in their city. You will be able to watch all four live shows from your home, or on a mobile device, as they are live streamed online on social media from 10.30am to 6.30pm.
