BORDER, noun, the part or edge of a surface or area that forms its outer boundary.
the line that separates one country, state, province, person etc., from another;
Our lives are full of borders and borderlines; lines that separate, enclose, exclude, surround, and protect; we encounter them physically, emotionally, psychologically, environmentally, and spiritually. We are asking, how are borderlines created? What does it mean to challenge a border? How do we cross a border? How can a border be interacted with? How do we know what or where a border(line) is? How do we obstruct, destroy, re-create, and delineate borders? Are all borders restrictive?
WHAT IS IMMERSIVE THEATRE:
Immersive theatre invites audiences to engage with performances in new and non-traditional ways. When attending an immersive show, you move through the theatre encountering performances in a variety of locations. You may be seated in a cushy seat watching the action on a stage or you may be invited to engage with performers in the lobby or take in an art installation as you transition from one location to the next.
Interested artists may submit an on-line application.
