EXTERNAL EVENT

After 10 sold out shows, Borderline are back for 2 nights only!

Expect humour, horror, live music and candy floss.
Please mind the gap between the continent and the island.

Welcome to the UK sets Britain in a wild funfair, led by an accordion-playing ringmaster/prime minister who rules the place. With satirical songs, clowning and vibrant ensemble performance, the show explores the refugee crisis, Brexit and global politics. This show is their stories, their voice, their talent and their sense of humour. A satirical play with a Sudanese, Italian, Syrian, Gambian, Iranian, Iraqi, Afghani, Zimbabwe, Armenian and French touch.

About the company
Borderline is a unique theatre ensemble of 14 refugee and European performers shortlisted for the Community integration Awards.
It was created by PSYCHEdelight, a participatory theatre company of Sanctuary founded by Sophie NL Besse a writer, director and psychotherapist. Three years ago they all embarked on an artistic and human adventure to raise awareness and change the negative narrative often associated with refugees. In 2016 they created Borderline, a satire of Calais Jungle and after touring nationally and internationally soon became known as “The Borderline people”.
