Good Chance Theatre's most recent stay in Paris was at Jean Quarré CHU, where we made more friends than ever before from across the world, hosting spectacular Hope Shows and a unique Boat Show on the Seine as the grand finale with over 350 audience members watching from the banks.
We'll be back again in Paris in the autumn, using theatre and art to create new kinds of communities and connect people, stories and cultures from across the world.
Good Chance Paris at Jean Quarré
We continued to build upon our groundbreaking work in the city, building our domes at Jean Quarré CHU in partnership with Emmaüs Solidarité, where we worked alongside refugees and migrants living in the Paris area, international and local artists and a wide range of brilliant partners. We curated an ambitious and surprising weekly artistic programme ranging from theatre, music and dance to sculpture, poetry and puppetry, showcasing this incredible work in a public Hope Show open to all every Saturday.
The project formed an integral part of Good Chance’s commitment to creating new kinds of communities, using the power of theatre to connect, unite and reclaim our individual and collective narratives.
This project followed our presence in Paris at ‘La Bulle’ refugee welcome centre in Porte de la Chapelle in Spring 2018 and in 2017 at Porte d’Aubervilliers and as part of the Chantiers d’Europe festival at Théâtre de la Ville on the Champs-Élysées. Good Chance Paris is a French association 835 145 855 00010, and for this stage of the project we are delighted to be returning to the city once again to build our domes as safe spaces of community, creativity, humanity, joy and artistic expression.
