On June 16th, Refugee History will host PsycheDelight's acclaimed play Borderline for a second time as part of Norwich Refugee Week 2018.
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 boasts a cast of thirteen. It features performers 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. After performances sold out repeatedly in London, the cast have toured in the UK, Europe and India.
This performance is open to school students and members of refugee support organisations in Norwich.
