The Great North Passion

The Great North Passion

Reuben at Intrinsic Lines has completed a BBC film and live installation project, which involved the use of twelve shipping containers to mark the various stations of the Crucifixion. These containers were placed in the heart of several communities across North-East of England, where a diverse array of artists to musicians from the Futureheads, Aerosol Ali (a graffiti artist) and Graeme Danby (a renowned opera singer) created specific installations within each container.

Reuben was commissioned by BBC Religion to film eight of the twelve stories. The finished film was then broadcast on BBC One and the still images were also used in a booklet specially published by the BBC to commemorate the broadcast.
