SEASON OF WELCOME
We’ll be working with friends from refugee and migrant centres across the city and beyond, as well as new people we meet along the way. We’ll host a bold artistic programme in our Good Chance domes celebrating diversity and difference, togetherness and solidarity. Through theatre, music, art, dance, film, puppetry and more, we’ll create new kinds of communities to connect, unite and reclaim our personal and collective narratives.
Our troupe of performers from around the world – all newly arrived in Paris – will build, programme and perform within the Good Chance ‘Theatre of Hope’, offering a handshake and warm reception to every member of the Parisian public who enters. We’ll challenge conventional ideas of welcome: what it means to welcome, whose responsibility it is, and how this works in practice. Our dome will be a unique space for introductions, using art to create and strengthen relationships between those welcoming, and being welcomed.
Using the power of art, together we will #WelcomeAll.

Theatre company La Troupe was born out of the Good Chance Paris domes. This core group of incredible performers formed a central pillar of every workshop and Hope Show, and now they are working together on a devised piece of theatre, developed collectively and led by Alexandre Moisescot.
On October 9th 2018 La Troupe held an event: ‘Allez Hope, La Troupe!’, a free and open-to-all reunion where our company performed what they have been working on for the past few weeks.
You can visit La Troupe’s workshop in our big dome on Thursday 18th October from 4pm - 5.30pm.
If you would like to support us in continuing our work in Paris please donate here.
Your support will help us create and use art to strengthen relationships between new and old communities. Without this support, we could not continue doing the work we do.
