Borderline is a satire of the Calais Jungle devised by an ensemble of refugee and European performers, and directed by Sophie NL Besse. This brave and original take on a controversial topic features seven refugees from Afghanistan, Sudan and Syria, who experienced Calais first-hand, and six British, French and Chilean experts in physical comedy. Borderline highlights the absurd aspects of European border control and of the asylum regime. It also reveals a side of the ‘Jungle’ camp that is rarely seen: the camaraderie, resilience and ingenuity of its inhabitants.

The play will be followed by a Q&A with the cast. The organisation Protection Approaches will then run a workshop focussing on the individual stories of those who have experienced identity-based violence. The workshop will investigate these stories through interactive activities and role play.

This event is for students from local schools and is not open to the public.

This event is part of the series Losing and finding home: refugee history, memory and culture.
