Border Tales is a bold, visceral dynamic attempt to show the lives of multicultural Britain’s today. The company of seven use dance, live music and dialogue to capture what it means to live in post-brexit Britain, which despite the show being first composed in 2013 still has a powerful attachment to the present day. Watching this show leads you through an entire emotional spectrum; you feel embarrassed, uplifted, perplexed, amazed, entranced…… all in eighty minutes.
I could quite easily just write the words, ‘GO AND SEE THIS SHOW’ and finish this review there. Funny, intelligent, outrageous, satirical, opinionated, emotional and every other brilliant adjective that any piece of theatre should be is how I would describe this new production by Middle Child at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
