"BorderLight has ignited a beacon."
- Thomas Mulready, COOL Cleveland
Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback of artists and audiences alike - we believe Cleveland is ready to embrace the festival as part of the cultural landscape of the city.
With the support of key advisors, stakeholders, staff, and board, we are excited to announce that the next BorderLight International Theatre + Fringe Festival will take place July 2021. We hope you will join us in advancing BorderLight’s growth as an enduring biennial summer theatre festival and a sustainable organization.
And thus, our work continues! The last few months have included everything from touring prospective new venues downtown, attending a national convening of fringe festival producers, building our base of supporters, and preliminary work on the international programming front. It is a fertile and active time for our young organization. We welcome your interest, your curiosity, your commitment, and your support.
