Borderline: A Comedy about a Tragedy

Part of Refugee Week

Witness a satire on Calais Jungle devised by an ensemble of European and refugee performers.

PSYCHEdelight presents Borderline, a satire on the Calais Jungle directed by Sophie Besse.

Born from a year of workshops Besse conducted in Calais, Borderline was created in collaboration with clown Frank Wurzinger and an ensemble of European performers and refugees from Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan and Palestine.

‘High comedy amidst the poignance. Powerful. Important’ (The Huffington Post)

‘Borderline has established PSYCHEdelight as one of the leading creators of theatre with refugees, exploring new ways to embed genuine participation that can lead to professional performance and artistic development.’ (Counterpoints Arts)
