17 Border Crossings

Theater director Thaddeus Phillips (Red-Eye to Havre de Grace, NYTW) steps onstage to create a lucid, visual and aural theatrical trip across 17 of the world’s borders. From Bosnia to Syria to Switzerland to Israel to Canada to Mexico, 17 Border Crossings playfully examines the imaginary lines we create and the funny and tragic consequences of trying to cross them. With almost nothing onstage, Phillips magically conjures a rusty Croatian ferry, modern international flights, obscure ports in the Amazon, the El Paso/Juarez border, deportations, strip searches, illegal crossings and conundrums in border geography. 17 Border Crossings makes its Italian premiere in Milan after selling out in Moscow, Hong Kong, Bucharest, Boston, & Perth and touring to over 25 cities across the globe.

The polished piece is wise about the absurd, haphazard nature of borders and the ways in which a country’s immigration policy is a reflection of that nation’s self-image – The Times
