I am not distorted by your gaze. I am not influenced by your eyes. I will not become a character for your entertainment. I will be myself. I will tell my stories, my life… tonight.
Borderline is an original NoExit Performance production that takes the audience on a fast-paced journey of self-reflection. Two unnamed female characters describe personal moments from their life that seem oddly familiar. As each woman recounts her individual experiences with desire, lust, and womanhood their exact relationship is slowly revealed. Are they the same woman? Two parts of one self? Or, are they two souls reunited?
Original script developed by Michael Bachman and Nicole Gatzimos. First production directed by Michael Bachman at the Phoenix Theatre in Indianapolis, Indiana in 2006. Photography by Daniel Brown.
