Two artists from opposite worlds meet in an unlikely place - the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It's 2017, and an ageing fishing boat is sinking fast, its occupants quickly abandoning ship. However, one young woman is panicking - she's six months pregnant, and can't swim.

'Borders' explores art in its many forms

Sebastian, an English photojournalist-turned-paparazzo, is sent to cover the Syrian refugee crisis for a well-known magazine. At the same time, an unnamed Syrian street artist is forced to flee the Assad regime after a dramatic change in her life.

Two worlds collide in the most heartbreaking and visceral of ways in 'Borders', the latest play by UK playwright Henry Naylor. Directed by Michael Cabot, 'Borders' will challenge preconceived notions of the Syrian refugee crisis and Western responses (or lack of) to it, and explores art in its many forms.

Naylor continues his success from his previous Adelaide Fringe Festival seasons for his Arabian Nightmares trilogy - 2016's ‘Echoes’ and 2017's ‘Angel’. Winner of both the Best of Edinburgh and Fringe First awards, Borders received 21 five- and four-star reviews.


This play is English spoken.



In dit politieke drama worden de verhalen van een Syrische graffitikunstenaar en een Britse fotograaf parallel gepresenteerd. Aan de ene kant zien we het dilemma van de fotograaf tussen het inzetten van zijn camera voor een betere wereld of geld en roem, aan de andere kant zien we de vrij onoplosbare situatie van de Syrische vluchteling.


Dit toneelstuk is Engelstalig.


"As we filed out in stunned silence wiping away the tears, it was a profound reminder of the power of art and culture."
