28th May 2016: A Day for Calais

A Day for Calais

NEAT Studio


 Workshops: 12pm - 7pm. Performance: 7:30pm

Neville Studio - Tickets: Entry by donation, reserve in advance.

Workshops: 12pm – 7pm

Hundreds of thousands of people have fled the Middle East and Africa, risking their lives to find safety. Many of them have ended up just a few hundred miles from us, in ‘the Jungle’ in Calais – a bleak and miserable place that has become a temporary home for thousands of women, men and children. In that desperation however, there is hope and art and creativity. And the Good Chance theatre is at the centre of that – a beacon of that hope, where people can join together, create and feel human.

Come to the Studio to spend a day thinking about the refugees and creating an anthem made in solidarity with those in Calais, through workshops in singing and lyric writing.

Led by Ariadne directors Susannah Tresilian and Frédérique Lecomte, with Gemma Bass and Gary Farr of the Vonnegut Collective. The final anthem will be performed via Skype to the refugees in Calais. Come and join us, no previous musical experience necessary, just enthusiasm!

To book a place on the workshop please call Box Office on 0115 941 9419.

Evening Performance: 7:30pm

A performance in solidarity with refugees in Calais, which includes the anthem created by workshop participants during the day and a new commission, DeadEnd/Safe Haven?, from Vonnegut Collective by Craig Farr on the theme of ‘world without borders’. Everyone is welcome to attend the evening performance.

Entry is by donation but tickets must be reserved in advance. To book seats for the evening performance please call Box Office on 0115 941 9419.
