17 Border Crossings
About 17 Border Crossings
With a chair, table, and bar of lights, visionary theatre maker and NYTW Usual Suspect Thaddeus Phillips (Red-Eye to Havre de Grace) magically conjures barricaded Venezuelan bridges, a rusty Croatian ferry, perilous international flights, obscure Amazonian ports, the twin cities of El Paso and Juarez, deportations, strip searches, illegal crossings, arbitrary passports and curious customs.
Based on NYTW Usual Suspect Thaddeus Phillips’ actual adventures, “17 Border Crossings” is a harrowing, comical, visually surreal and engrossing look at the imaginary lines that divide up the world and the very real barriers they create. “17 Border Crossings” makes its Off-Broadway premiere after sold out runs on four continents. Tatiana Mallarino (¡El Conquistador!) directs.
