We are not miserable people. We don't want pity.
We don't want to always trigger sadness,
embarrassement, or worse: fear!
We are also nice, lovely...
Borderline is our stories, our crazy experiences of the Calais Jungle that 7 of us from Aghanistan, Syria and Sudan devised with 6 European performers.
But more than that it's the proof that we can do great things together!
After sell out shows in the UK, We are now super excited to start our international tour to Germany, France, Greece and Denmark!!!!
One problem though: There are 15 of us...
We have accomodation already,
But transport is super expensive for all of us!
And it's very difficult to find funding for European tour especially nowadays! (I wonder why...)
So... either we randomly get rid of a few of us... (gulp)
Or we do the "we were 70 in the boat" again...
But honnestly we'd rather not. So if you can help us that would be amazing!!!! Even a "share" of our page is great!
This tour is VERY important for us.
we are invited to perform in a theatres in Basel, Berlin and Copenhagen but also in refugee camps in Paris and Lesvos. We hope to spread our message and our positive vibe that we reckon will help kill cliches and bring people together. We also want to take this opportunity to perform and give workshops in refugee camps as we don't want to forget those left behind. Calais Jungle has been dismantled but these people still exist and need our help!
THANK YOU very much for your support and if you are keen to get even more involved in our adventure, do not hesitate to get in touch. We have many more projects including the creation of "Borderline 2" about the situation of refugees in the UK and more "Together workshops" of course! You can join us on:
SHOUKRAN! THANK YOU! MERCI! MANANA, GRACIAS! (Yes we have a chilean economic migrant in the cast as well)
And if you want to know more about us here are a couple of very nice articles- interviews!
