Theatres Paris 2017 Paris 2017 Good luck Paris In March 2017, Good Chance built a temporary theater in Paris, in collaboration with Collectif MU and with the support of Emmaus Solidarity. Welcoming Hundreds of Refugees, artists and volunteers to work together over 5 weeks, it was a space for the first time and finding ways to escape Chappelle in Northern Paris. Read Hugues Le Tanneur on Good Chance Paris (French) 11 meter in diameter, the broad dome was quickly filled with art, music and performance, giving a home to cultures and traditions from Yemen to Ethiopia, Syria to Somalia, Afghanistan to Sudan. We believe that art has a huge role to play in meeting different points between different kinds of people. As the world changes and people move, the responsibility of artists grows. "Good luck", an art bubble! Like a UFO, you can see it in the distance, Porte d'Aubervilliers, this pretty white dome. Relive a little to stand a few steps, door of the Chapel. Wrap yourself up with a human warmth that's missing out ... To be entertained to turn away from his condition. Incredible are your life urges ... How lucky to have met you! You are an electroshock that cancels fear and ignorance ... You are shining eyes, sincere and contagious smiles, singing voices, bodies dancing Life ... You remind the most jaded in the world that life must pulsate, Votre dose inépuisable d'espérance m'a contaminée. Vous vaincrez à ne pas être qu'un "statut" de "migrant", Vous êtes infiniment +. "Good chance" est un merveilleux refuge, un coin de paix, de bienveillance et de respect, Se sublimant dans l'Art du théâtre, de la musique, du dessin, de l'écriture... Ici, on joue ensemble, on partage, on se repose, on crée du lien, on se regarde, on se salue, on apprend à se se connaitre, on se reconnait, on se connecte, on EXISTE... Le tout dans un grand bain d'Humanité! "Good chance" est une bulle d'air... Et comme toute bulle, elle est fragile, éphémère, Ellequittera la Porte d'Aubervilliers samedi... Jusqu'à ce qu'elle retrouve un nouveau souffle pour qui voudra bien l'accueillir dans Paris... - Marie, Bénévole avec Good Chance Theatre, avril 2017 A programme of work was run based on week-long residencies from companies across Europe, culminating in Hope Shows at the end of the week, like in Calais. To the good chance team, We know this place will close this week But I want you to know something We have found the love in this place And we have found the family And we have found sincere friends And sincere smiles Smiles that come from the heart When this place closes, we will never forget you Because your love will continue inside us Because you gave hope to every refugee Every refugee knows someone who cares about him Thank you from all our hearts We will tell all the world about this place About the nice people we met here And we will tell our children in the future about your love Your humanity. - Written and performed by Yusef in the Good Luck dome in Paris Chantiers d'Europe festival at Théâtre de la Ville For the month of May 2017, Good Chance was delighted to build and run at 'Petit dome', which was part of the Chantiers d'Europe festival at Théâtre de la Ville on the Champs-Élysées. The 'Little Dome' was an interactive exhibition, discussion and performance space, promoting the importance of freedom of expression and reinvigorating the dialogue around the changing face of Europe today.
