Good Chance's Encampment: Zugunruhe – An Individual Sound Walk Exhibition

A walking concert made up of songs shared by residents of the Calais refugee camp

Having 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. Join them at Encampment for nine days and nights of theatre, art, music, discussion, solidarity, welcome and hope. Zugunruhe was created by Tom Bailey and Simon Whetham. The German compound word ‘zugunruhe’ is an ornithological term describing an instinctual state of restlessness or anxiety that occurs among birds and other animals during migratory periods. The songs they've gathered from refugees in the Calais camp are interwoven with the calls and songs of birds that migrate across the world, recorded at the RSPB site Ham Wall on the Somerset levels. Together they form a brief sound journey following African and Middle Eastern migration routes. Good Chance is delighted to welcome The Mechanical Animal Corporation to Encampment: a space of welcome and expression housing a daily programme of events to reinvigorate the dialogue on displacement and asylum. Tour runs between: 11am-1pm and 3pm-5pm. The walk lasts 20 to 30 minutes. Spaces are limited so arrive in plenty of time. This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed. We need your card details to store the event information in "My Tickets", but rest assured, we won't charge you a penny. There are no tickets to collect. Just find a space.
