Faith is a 24-hour invitation to find out what keeps each of us going in tough times. Through music, theatre, installation and ritual, we will unfold an epic overarching story, culminating in an extraordinary moment that everyone can take part in.
Together we will explore how people of faith, and of non-religious world views, understand and celebrate the chapters and mysteries of their lives. It will encourage, challenge and spotlight discussions around who and what we have faith in.
Beginning with an opportunity to eat together across the city, and to learn how we each mark our weekend, this unique piece of theatre will tell the stories of Coventry families, sharing their very different relationships with faith and hope, through a series of journeys through the streets and faith buildings of the Coventry Sacred Space (an area which runs from the City Centre into north Coventry and encompasses faith buildings from almost all of the major religions, as well as green and other sacred spaces that are used by people of all faiths and none).
The research and development of Faith has been guided and informed by many individuals who play active roles in the diverse faith communities of Coventry, and we look forward to continuing to collaborate with these communities as we bring the idea to life in 2021.
