He studied first in New York, and his life on the stage has taken him from Amsterdam to Vancouver and just about everywhere in between. His theatre work includes Orpheus Descending, The Duchess of Malfi, Harlem Duet, Edward II, Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Macbeth, King Henry VII, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Piano Lesson. Borden has won many awards including: Theatrical Achievement Award, African Heritage Award, Lifetime Achievement and Artistic Excellence Award, Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee medal, African-Nova Scotian Music Association Heritage Award, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award and the Portia White Prize. He was given the Order of Canada in 2005. When not acting, Borden is also a playwright and mentor to young artists in Nova Scotia.
