TIME AND PLACE:
@ Somerset House, Strand, London WC2R 1LA
Having set up a theatre of hope in the Calais ‘Jungle’ refugee camp, Good Chance are at Somerset House as part of the Utopia season with two projects that seek to reinvigorate the dialogue on displacement and asylum and to offer a space to listen, learn and take action towards a better future together.
The Machine To Be Another is an interactive virtual reality experience designed to explore the experience of living in a refugee camp and build understanding of the implications of displacement. Encampment Installation takes over Lancaster Place with an encampment of tents and wooden shelters which people are forced to make their homes in the Calais “Jungle” refugee camp.
BeAnotherLab presents The Machine To Be Another
A series of Embodied Narratives that allow audience members to virtually inhabit the body of another person and experience their perspective of camp life. Hear the stories and step into the shoes of workers, volunteers and refugees around the world to understand more about day to day life in a refugee camp.
Walk among the tents and look inside the shelters which people are forced to make their homes in the Calais “Jungle” refugee camp for indefinable lengths of time. Who were the people that made these spaces their homes? Where are they now?
