2015 Fringe Festival: Borders by Jo Strømgren Kompani of Norway

Wednesday, September 9, 2015 - 6:00pm - Saturday, September 12, 2015 - 5:00pm
140 N. Columbus Blvd Philadelphia, PA 19106 Corner of Columbus Blvd and Race Street

A man and a woman share a workplace. Mutual respect is a virtue but beneath the surface a territorial war is taking place. And the discovery of emotional addiction.

To each other, to the game itself, or a vicious mix of both.
With a bit of imagination, yet another level of understanding is possible. Could this troublesome coexistence resemble a classic border dispute between two nations?

The production is a collaboration between Jo Strømgren Kompani and one of the northernmost institutional theatres in the world – Hålogaland Teater in Tromsø. Even though the full panoramic view to the border dispute hotspot of the Arctic region adds a specific relevance, the theme is universal to the core. Border conflicts exist everywhere.
