A Grindr conversation between a Lebanese guy and an Israeli guy develops into an impossible relationship, in the wake of growing tension between the two countries.
Boaz and George meet on Grindr. One is in Israel, the other in Lebanon. They’re both horny but can’t meet. Something in their conversation excites them both. The distance, the border fence, the enemy, the foreignness. They both fill a need for one another. Their conversations move forward, and they decide to meet in Berlin, an island of peace in a world of wars. But in the Middle Eastern reality, the border between the two countries heats up, and they are forced to make difficult decisions.
BORDERS is a virtual drama about two enemies who were never supposed to meet, who try to form an intimate relationship against all odds. Sixteen virtual conversations form a relationship that crosses cultures, politics, and wars. Indirect relationships between screens, written words, emojis, and GIFs. Their relationship exists in a liminal area, on the border, which transforms from a dividing line between countries into a meeting point.
The show was voted for the short list of the Israeli Indie Theater Awards (Kipod Hazahav) for 2019 and recieved two nominations: Playwright of the Year (Nimrod Danishman) and Best Actor of the Year (Morad Hassan), as well as being chosen to take part in Isra-Drama & International Exposure of Israeli Theatre. The play is also performed in New York by the Dirty Laundry Theater.
