Containers used to re-tell Easter Story

On a green hillside in Tyneside, United Kingdom, twelve shipping containers are beginning to be placed. Their new job?  Retelling the Easter story to be televised by the BBC.

The Great North Passion will combine an art installation and a broadcast in South Shields on Good Friday.

The 20ft and 40ft containers will be revamped to reflect the stations of the cross and Christ’s trial and death.

Producer Heenan Bhatti said the idea came from the area’s shipping history and the rivers which “gave it life”.

“We want to tell the story of the Passion, but also in an innovative way, in a way that feels fresh and engages the community and artists to tell a story in a spectacular way,” he said.

Shipping containers are also being transported to areas in Northumberland and North Tyneside.

Bents Park on the South Shields coast will be host to some of the finished containers – which will form a crucifix.
