Following a phenomenal run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe to sold-out audiences, award-winning company Protein brings us Border Tales.

Nominated for the prestigious Carol Tambor Award, this punchy and thought-provoking piece of dance theatre makes an honest commentary on multicultural Britain. With dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences, Border Tales looks at post-Brexit Britain seen through the eyes of its international cast.

“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

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

Our Creative Learning Team says
Supporting the PSHE curriculum as well as Performing Arts. Border Tales is made up of six stories, each personal and real to the performers on stage. It offers a really touching insight into the UK’s multicultural living, with something everyone can really relate too, regardless of their background, culture or heritage. With the theme being so current and charged with social and political questions, the use of dance, theatre and music is a really accessible way to approach young people. Suitable for GCSE and A Level students.
