Performance: Border Tales
  • The House, Plymouth University

Save event

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 home-landers. 

Conceived and directed by Luca Silvestrini. Commissioned by Bath Dance, ICIA Bath, DanceEast, DanceXchange, Dance Manchester and The Place.

“Superbly staged and performed” – The Telegraph

“Excellently performed […], Border Tales is a big, brave, cacophonous attempt to show what it means to live in multicultural Britain today.” – The Guardian

"Protein shares with us stories and scenarios that make us laugh, cringe and reflect." – Londondance.com
