From the moment we first greeted our artists, to the incredible procession of puppets down Superior Avenue, to wild innovations on the Fringe, and the unleashed jubilation of our closing night party, we witnessed magic. What we saw and felt was community created by the wonder of performance.
BorderLight 2019, in every way, exceeded our expectations. But none of this would have been possible without the magic worked by our Board, staff, event team, volunteers, artists and 2019 inaugural sponsors who took a chance on our inaugural festival—all of whom brought the Festival to life. Our gratitude is boundless.
Here, we share with you some highlights from the summer and an invitation to help shape what is to come.
