The BorderLight Festival takes place in downtown Cleveland over 3-5 days in late summer. The Festival presents diverse and adventurous new theatre work through three strands of programming:
BorderLight brings thousands of audience members to downtown Cleveland to experience affordable, surprising performances from across the theatrical spectrum. Some performances are outside and free, while others are staged in novel spaces. By making theatre more accessible, BorderLight engages Clevelanders and visitors with the city and brings life to its streets. In turn, this creates long-term cultural, social, and economic impacts to benefit our region.
“BorderLight has ignited a beacon.” – Thomas Mulready, COOL Cleveland
