Dome In a day
a new global community in 24 hours
After first rising in the Calais Jungle refugee camp in 2015 and following its recent occupations in London, Paris and New York, the original Good Chance Theatre Dome continued its international odyssey to the centre of Coventry, celebrating the culmination of World Refugee Week in the centre of the UK’s 2021 City of Culture.
Dome in a Day was a free day-long arts extravaganza where a community of international artists and audiences discovered new common ground through puppetry, circus, singing, drumming and poetry - all in a single day.
We held an interactive day of workshops and performances from local and international artists from puppetry to kung- fu, theatre, live music, circus and the world premiere performance of the Change the Word collective.
CHANGE THE WORD
The Change the Word collective had their premiere performance at Dome in a Day. Drawing on wide-ranging cultural heritages, reflections on the city and their wild imaginations, these upcoming artists showcased stories and poetry in a bold interweaving of powerful new voices.
