Following a phenomenal run to sold-out audiences Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, 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 homelanders’.
‘Funny, thought-provoking and consistently entertaining, Border Tales celebrates our differences, acknowledges our sameness and does more to repair the rifts than politics ever could.’ ★★★★★ The Scotsman
