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.
