The online show is available to all, but we have organised an exclusive online Q&A session especially for people aged 12-17 with Luca Silvestrini himself! And it is FREE!
About the show:
Protein’s punchy yet poignant commentary on multicultural Britain, seen through the eyes of an international cast, is told through dance, live music and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. With this broadcast, we contribute to breaking down the walls of silence that uphold and sustain ‘borders’ around the world.
“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
“A well-thought-out, beautifully performed and poignant piece of theatre which will always be relevant.”
★★★★★ The Upcoming
“Border Tales is essential theatre for the political climate of today.”
★★★★★ Broadway Baby
