Dome In a day
A FREE Day-long arts extravaganza SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES!
Saturday 22nd June
11AM - late
The Good Chance Dome, Millennium Place outside the Transport Museum,
Hales Street, CV1 1JD, Coventry
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 will continue 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 is a free day-long arts extravaganza and we welcome you to be part of this bold artistic experiment: to build a new community of international artists and audiences and discover a new common ground - all in a single day.
An interactive day of workshops and performances from local and international artists. Everyone is welcome to join us for puppetry, kung fu, theatre, live music, circus and the world premiere performance of the Change the Word collective.
Decorate walls with murals, trace poetry across the floor, drum until the canvas tingles, improvise a song, scrawl a lyric on the wall - welcome to a theatre that is open to all!
CHANGE THE WORD
See the premiere performance from the Change the Word collective, a group of writers from across Coventry – some recently arrived, some born and bred here. Drawing on wide-ranging cultural heritages, reflections on the city and their wild imaginations, these upcoming artists showcase stories and poetry in a bold interweaving of powerful new voices.
6.30pm, Good Chance Dome, Millennium Place
We’re looking for helping hands to provide assistance with the build, to support during the Dome in a Day workshops and performances, and to help us with the take down.
Recruiting on a rolling basis
We’re looking for Coventry-based artists from all over the world and from all disciplines to perform and share their art. You’ll be part of the ‘Dome in a Day’ performance programme on Saturday 22nd June.
