Encampment by Good Chance

'Encampment by Good Chance': Part of the 'Festival of Love' at the Southbank Centre, 'Encampment by Good Chance' is a wonderful programme of art, discussion and hope for the future, inspired by the temporary theatre of hope that was set up at the Calais 'Jungle' refugee camp; providing a space of welcome and expression and housing a daily programme of theatre, art, music, discussion and workshops, with special guests and performances. Reinvigorating the dialogue on one of the biggest human migrations in history and encouraging the celebration of our diversity and humanity, many events will be presented, including: an exhibition of art and sound by the residents of the Calais camp, 'My Mouth Brought Me Here' (a proverb-based production exploring freedom of expression), 'Why Women Refugees are often Unheard and Unseen' (a discussion with music by Maya Youssef), 'The Unknown' (a theatrical production), 'Poetry from Exiled Writers Ink' (involvign poetry readings and discussion) as well as a closing night that will feature music by the Palestinian band 47Soul.
