Blur boundaries, be they national, spiritual or physical, with Bards Without BordersHaving set up a temporary theatre of hope in the Calais refugee camp, Good Chance are delighted to be pitching their Dome on Festival Terrace at the Southbank Centre in London this summer.
A London-based group of poets and performers, Bards Without Borders show how Shakespeare can shine a light on our own experiences of loss, joy and displacement. Members of the group are visiting Good Chance’s Encampment at Southbank Centre as part of a ten-date national tour.
The evening is accompanied by music from Mr Shapouri, an Iranian musician, artist and calligrapher. He started playing the santoor when he was ten years old, and has since performed at concerts in Iran and the UK, and for Brighton’s Refugee Radio.
Mr Shapouri is joined by Kourosh Kouchakpour, a chamber musician and teacher. Kouchakpour’s mastery of the tar, setar and tombak – all traditional Persian instruments – earned him first place at the 2005 National Student Music Festival.
