The Great North Passion (station 3)

The Great North Passion (station 3)

As part of the BBC and The Cultural Spring collaboration, GemArts commissioned Mohammed 'Aerosol' Ali to work with St Cuthberts’ congregation and local community, to create artwork both outside and inside a giant shipping container. Exploring themes of Exhaustion and Being Alone, taken from the third station of the cross, this work was then displayed as part of a live BBC broadcast on Good Friday.



Continuing our work with choreographer, Mayuri Boonham of ATMA Dance, GemArts co-commissioned an innovative new piece of work, a dance-sculpture-sonic art Installation entitled, Erhebung.
