SYNOPSIS: 17 Border Crossings
begins with a man at a desk on an empty stage and ends up everywhere but, taking audiences on a trip around the world via Phillips's effortlessly fluent storytelling. A chair, table, and bar of lights become the imagined settings for invasive body searches at Charles de Gaulle, ayahuasca experiments in the Amazon, KFC-smuggling in Palestine, and run-ins with Ace of Base on Croatian ferries in this engrossing look at the imaginary lines that divide up the world and the very real barriers they create.
