Wunderbaum and KVS present a theatrical trilogy about the laws of the border and the borders of the law. A story about statelessness, migration and sovereignty: the trial of a Somali pirate, the experiences of a Balkan prostitute and the political lobby surrounding the European border control.

This performance forms part of The New Forest: a large-scale project during which alternatives for a future society will be investigated over the coming four years. The New Forest will take various forms, such as a series of performances, an interactive online platform and an extensive mechanism of cooperation between various social sections.
