About the show
6 - 21 November 2014 / Covert Locations Between Bristol and Newport and Online
Bordergame is a twisted documentary. The content is rooted in the truth. Displaced. The situation has been displaced. People have been displaced. The truth has been displaced, stretched, rendered absurd. No, it was already absurd, more absurd than I had ever imagined.
Bordergame was an immersive piece of theatre that offered its players a safe haven from the perils of their old lives. All they have to do is make it from Bristol to Newport, without arousing the suspicions of the Border Agency of the Autonomous Republic of Cymru (BAARC) and its online, volunteer army of Active Citizens.
Bordergame won the inaugural Space Prize – a new, biennial £20,000 digital theatre award presented by The Space and BBC Writersroom to encourage theatres across the United Kingdom to create a unique theatrical experience that will be shown on The Space website.
