About the company
Borderline: 13 Countries - 1 Family. A unique theatre ensemble shortlisted for the Community Integration Awards.
It was created by PSYCHEdelight, a Theatre Company of Sanctuary led by Sophie NL Besse, a writer director and psychotherapist.
Three years ago, they all embarked on an artistic and human adventure to raise awareness and change the negative narrative often associated with refugees. THIS SHOW IS THEIR VOICE
For the creation of Welcome to the UK we worked alongside the Women for Refugee Women drama group, supporting refugee and asylum women performers who have joined the Borderline cast.
They are doing incredible work and it seems very important for us to help them raise awareness around the trafficking of women to the UK.
THEY ARE BACK!
You loved their satire of Calais Jungle.
You thought their journey was finally over.
They thought so too.
Welcome to the UK! Come in Ladies and Gentlemen, take a seat!
Hold on tight ... It's Borderline!
Expect Humour, horror, live music and candy floss.
PLEASE MIND THE GAP BETWEEN THE CONTINENT AND THE ISLAND.
The Borderline company present the world premiere of their new show, Welcome to the UK.
They will also be performing their first show, Borderline, twice a week alongside Welcome to the UK on Tuesdays and Saturdays, so you can see both shows in the same day!
Borderline is a satire of Calais Jungle devised and performed by a mixed ensemble of refugee and European performers.
It premiered in November 2016 at the Cockpit Theatre as part of the Voila! Festival and has been touring since nationally and internationally (Germany, Switzerland, Denmark and India).
Welcome to the UK is is a brand-new story - set on this side of The Channel.
