Middlesbrough Town Hall
May 2018


Erimus was commissioned by Middlesbrough Council to celebrate the reopening of Middlesbrough Town Hall.  We created an immersive theatrical production designed to show off as many features as possible within the Town Hall complex.

Erimus takes its inspiration from Middlesbrough’s motto, We Shall Be, reflecting the exciting future of the Town Hall. Erimus  celebrated the future of Middlesbrough Town Hall, exploring what it means to be from Middlesbrough, celebrating Middlesbrough’s rich cultural identity and how the Town Hall acts as a beacon within that cultural landscape.

The performance highlighted the history of the building and lead audiences into previously unknown areas, such as the cells and courtroom, culminating in a large-scale mass movement finale, a spectacular dance theatre piece with projection mapping and text derived from conversations with Middlesbrough residents and participants in the show.
