Blue Borders


How do invisible lines have such monumental impact? Based on the personal experiences of Colombian émigré Laura Anzola, Blue Borders explores how whale communication and migration studies can create a path to understanding the complexity of immigration, the concept of borders, and our relationship to the world that we inhabit. Combining cutting-edge animation techniques and projection technology, Blue Borders invites the audience into a sensory experience never before imagined - a visual environment projected onto a dome and suspended over an audience floating weightlessly on the surface water.


Blue Borders will premiere at Calgary’s Beakerhead in 2021 as the final entry in Ghost River Theatre’s Six Senses Series.
