Hello, we’re Good Chance.
The world is on the move, our climate is changing, a pandemic keeps us apart. We’re working with artists from around the world, bringing communities together to tell bigger stories of hope and humanity.
Good Chance began in the Calais refugee camp in 2015, where we built our first ever ‘Theatre of Hope’, to bring people living in the camp together into our geodesic Dome for conversations, connections and creations. After the camp was demolished, we created the play The Jungle, to shine a light on the refugee crisis and start a global conversation around immigration.
The Jungle had critically acclaimed sold-out runs from the Young Vic theatre and London’s West End, to New York and San Francisco, and will return to tour the US in 2021/22.

We create Productions that tell big stories of hope and humanity, build Dome theatres across the world working together with refugees and local people, and we have an Ensemble of refugee artists we collaborate with to create visionary new art.
The Walk is our most ambitious endeavour yet.
“The Genesis Foundation is proud to support The Walk. In 2018 we awarded the Genesis Prize to Good Chance Theatre. Its vision and ground-breaking community building projects have, we believe, the power to change the world.”
