The BorderLight Festival Experience
There are festivals that entertain you for a day, and then there are festivals that stay with you long after the production trucks roll away.
BorderLight is new contemporary theatre festival for adventure seekers, and the culturally curious. Get ready for 4 spectacular days that will transform downtown Cleveland from Public Square to Playhouse Square.
The BorderLight Festival features 40 productions across 11 indoor and outdoor downtown Cleveland venues, all within walking distance of each other...or hop on, hop off the FREE downtown trolley running from end to end of the festival.
Shows include professional touring theatre companies from around the globe, a “fringe festival” of fresh, alternative, and original performances from companies across the US, along with special collaborations between visiting international artists and some of the city’s most celebrated theatres: Cleveland Public Theatre, Karamu House, Dobama Theatre and Cleveland Play House.
Whether you’re an avid theater goer, or new to live performance, there’s something for everyone.
Choose your own adventure. There are over 100 memorable experiences to explore! Follow the link to view the full BorderLight Festival lineup.
