Good Chance Theatre on their journey from the Calais Jungle to London's South Bank

Encampment runs at the Southbank Centre and Somerset House until 7 August

We popped along to the Southbank Centre to meet Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, artistic directors and co-founders of Good Chance Theatre, to chat about their experience at the Calais Jungle and why they are bringing the dome to London's South Bank.

As part of the Southbank Centre's annual Festival of Love, Good Chance will host a programme of performances and events, uniting artists from across Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Encampment, is a series of free theatre, art, music, discussions and workshops with guests from around the world to London over nine days from 30 July.

The programme, which will help to raise awareness of the migrant crisis, will include highlights such as; a performance of Nassim Soleimanpour's White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Cush Jumbo; a new devised work created by Good Chance; a production from Lebanese company Zoukak entitled The Last Tablet about the value of life and living under the shadow of death; and an exhibition of art created by residents of the Calais camp.

Good Chance Encampment will run at the Southbank Centre as part of the Festival of Love from 30 July to 7 August. Click here for more information.
