Theatre & Performance


Council Chamber


A twelve-year-old girl sneaks across the border into her own country. Her parents watch her on a computer screen. The works of a half-forgotten performance artist seem to hold the key to bringing down a brutal system operating on our behalf and under our noses. Do you join in? Or do you look the other way?

From the maker of The Price of Everything and Going Viral, Instructions for Border Crossing is the exposed gearbox of a political thriller. Blending Daniel’s trademark storytelling with a series of live interventions from the audience*, the show itself is as unstable as the world it describes.

*Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.
