Following a phenomenal run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to sold-out audiences, award winning company Protein presents a thought-provoking yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. Border Tales looks at post-Brexit Britain seen through the eyes of an international cast and gazes satirically on stereotypical thinking about migrant outsiders and bigoted homelanders.
‘Funny, thought-provoking and consistently entertaining, Border Tales celebrates our differences, acknowledges our sameness and does more to repair the rifts than politics ever could.’
- The Scotsman
“Excellently performed [...] Border Tales is a big, brave, cacophonous attempt to show what it means to live in multicultural Britain today.”
- The Guardian
“Luca Silvestrini, director of Protein, is one of the UK's most consistently provocative choreographers, with works such as Dear Body and LOL pointing a satirical finger at society's most absurd contradictions.”
Luke Jennings, The Observer
Border Taleswas developed from research conducted with migrants and refugees across Europe, Palestine, India and the UK, including participants from Islington Refugee Centre in a dance performance project hosted at The Place where Luca is a Work Place artist.
Conceived and Directed by Luca Silvestrini Commissioned by Bath Dance, ICIA Bath, DanceEast, DanceXchange, Dance Manchester and The Place.
