Have you ever overstepped a margin, or had one overstepped? Have you felt marginalised, or had a barrier or border to cross?
Over the Margins is a vignette play that explores barriers, borders, obstacles, and margins – how people overcome obstacles or cross boundaries, whether physical, geographical or personal.
The play uses the Norwegian folk story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff as a starting point, as the themes in the story are very current and relevant to our times, touching on hunger, bravery, overcoming obstacles, travel, migration, and moving to 'greener pastures'.
The group explored their own barriers or experience of obstacles in life and improvised around these issues – meaning that many of the scenes are based directly on their experiences. For this performance the group are giving ourselves an added challenge, using only live music and sound.
