Long time readers of AiB will realise that over the year’s I’ve enjoyed various Flashmob enterprises ... from one that was staged in Paddington Station many years ago, to the Manchester Passion (Good Friday 2006) and last Christmas’ Liverpool Nativity that told the familiar story using modern characters in very a familiar city setting.
Mike Geaney did an incredible job brining it all together. Paul Randall revealed some more of his technical genius. The cast were on good form, the homeless choir looked appropriately ragged but sang like angels, and the soup was just the ticket!
Highlights included: Joseph's dream sequence - projected on a screen above his head as he slept - Mary's song - from the steps of the church - the homeless choir outside the homeless shelter (the vestry) - the birth cry of the baby (from the shed) - the video link to Herod's Palace - and the star on top of the vestry roof!
A huge effort – but hopefully hugely meaningful for those involved and those watching. Some online hunting to be done to find if there’s any video footage from their creativity.
