Scenes from the City at Nolias Gallery
'You close your eye to dream and the bus drives on'

Theatre company Broken Glass presents a collaborative art, literature and theatre project.

Taking you on a magical and surreal journey Scenes from the City follows a shifting perspective of everyday life, turning the mundane and the prosaic into something extraordinary.

From exhibitionists on the underground to lost loves and fading starlets, illustration meets narrative in a series of unexpected encounters and daily collisions.

Scenes from the City is based on an online collaboration between illustrator Ben Lambert and writer Vicky Flood exploring a continuous and evolving relationship between visual and literary storytelling.

The gallery will house the original text and illustrations, re-ordered and re-connected, accompanied by a radio adaptation of the narrative, performed by Broken Glass, and set to stills of the illustrations.

The exhibition will also feature original photography by Laura Scott, commissioned by the company.
