This performance was part of our autumn 2017 season
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.
Running time: 80 minutes (no interval)
