Now Streaming: ‘Border Tales’ UK Dance Production

Share this article

Border Tales, the UK dance production by choreographer Luca Silvestrini, is streaming online for one week only.

The show is a commentary on multicultural Britain using dance, live music, and dialogue compiled from the performers’ personal experiences. Originally created in 2013 and presented in the round, Border Tales returned in 2016 for the BBC World Service and in 2017 for the Edinburgh Fringe, during a ‘post-Brexit’ Britain.

The production looks at Britain, seen through the eyes of an international cast, and gazes satirically on stereotypical thinking and migrant outsiders. With a story told by six party-goers and their host, the result is a funny, honest, and sometimes discomforting commentary on stereotypical thinking and casual racism, portraying Britain as a place where the novelty of cultural diversity has worn off, fusion is starting to taste bland, and harmonious living has become rather tricky.

It is devised and performed by Eryck Brahmania, Temitope Ajose-Cutting, Andrew Gardiner, Kenny Wing Tao Ho, Anthar Kharana, Stephen Moynihan, Yuyu Rau. Original cast members include Salah El Brogy, Jodie Honeybourne, Femi Oyewole, Stuart Waters. Conceived and directed by Silvestrini, the music is composed by Andy Pink, with additional music by Anthar Kharana, lighting design by Jackie Shemesh, and costume styling by Valentina Golfieri.

This stream is the second production in The Show Must Go On’s dance season, preceded by Matthew Bourne’s The Car Man.
