Fight Night Premieres in Belgium
On April 10th The Border Project’s brand new show Fight Night opens at the beautiful Vooruit Theatre in Gent, Belgium. Two years in the making, Fight Night sees us join forces with Belgium’s renowned Ontroerend Goed, and we’re pretty thrilled with the result. The show will tour Belgium before returning to Europe later in the year to play Edinburgh and Plymouth. Look out for more news on its Australian season next year! More info and tour dates here.

HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY TO US!
TBP are thrilled to be celebrating 10 amazing years as a theatre company. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all the friends, family, audiences, colleagues, donors, sponsors, funding bodies and anyone else who might have helped us along the way to becoming one of South Australia's leading contemporary theatre companies. Although alcohol (outside of office hours of course!) and chocolate are always a hit in the TBP office, if you'd like a hand in helping us celebrate our next 10 years, then you can make a tax-deductable donation here. We can't wait to share the next chapter with you all.
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR SAM HAREN ANNOUNCES DEPARTURE
After an amazing 10 years as Artistic Director for The Border Project, Sam Haren has decided the time has come to leave the company and pursue further opportunities in the performing arts and convergent media. It is with much sadness we see Sam leave in September of this year but with heartfelt love, thanks and pride we wish him all the best in his future endeavours and know that as a founding member and dear friend he will always remain a part of our lives. However, it is with much excitement that we announce that from September a newly formed Artistic Directorate led by Cameron Goodall will take the company forwards into what we already know will be thrilling new ventures from 2013.

I AM NOT AN ANIMAL SEASON WRAPPED UP
After nearly 2 years in the making and having taken up temporary home at Adelaide Zoo for the past 3 months, the team at TBP have wrapped up an incredible season of I Am Not An Animal. As a closing production in the 2012 Adelaide Festival and the culmination of so much hard work with our newest friends at Adelaide Zoo, it has been an amazing experience that has taught the company so much about animal and human behaviour. For those who were a part of it, all those who worked with us to achieve it, and those who experienced it and left us such kind and heartfelt feedback - we are extremely grateful and privileged to have touched your lives in this way.
I AM NOT AN ANIMAL SOLD OUT!
We are thrilled to announce TBP's latest offering I Am Not An Animal at Adelaide Zoo for the Adelaide Festival is officially sold out! Our thanks to all who have bought tickets to what will be a very unique experience and a glimpse of an Adelaide Zoo you've never seen before.

May 2011 - The Border Project has a new home
The Border Project has just signed the lease on a new office in the colourful and characterful Peel Chambers in the heart of Adelaide's cultural district. Within a stone's throw from Arts SA, State Theatre of South Australia, Adelaide Festival and Adelaide Fringe Offices, The Border Project finds itself in great company in this part of town and located precisely above the offices of fellow theatricals Slingsby Theatre Company. Is that a herd of elephants above? Nope it's The Border Project on the move and there's lots happening in the coming months so there will be plenty of comings and goings and we're stoked to have space to spread out. Thanks to our wonderful friend's at The Adelaide Festival for leasing us a room in their offices to date and we hope you enjoy your new photocopy room!
