ABSOLUT FRINGE PHOTO MAGAZINE

OCCUPY YOUR IMAGINATION As Absolut Fringe is drawing its curtains after two weeks of theatre, dance and music extravaganzas, we have sent the our BLOW team of photographers on their last Fringe mission this year. We are very proud to have had the opportunity of documenting such a joyous celebration of creativity and to produce a kaleidoscope of images. Huge thanks to the Absolut Fringe team – especially to Róise, Jessica, Conleth, Kamil, Joey, Niamh and Aisling - for support and encouragement! Extra special thanks goes to the whole team of BLOW for all the hard work, passion and not losing it when the pressure got high! All our photographs compiled by our great and creative team are available on blowphotomagazine.com/blowabsolutfringe – so if you feel like it’s a long wait till next year, take a peek now and then, and… occupy your imagination!

CHEMISTRY company: 50% male experimental theatre photo: mike donnelly

We know that there is something in the air. But what is this ‘something’? Perhaps these things are hard to explain rationally because they relate to our feelings, instincts, emotions and senses. Where exactly does this “chemistry” come from? What can it lead us to? Can we influence it?

SELL OUT TOUR company: lords of strut photo: sally-anne kelly

Brothers Famous Seamus and Sean-tastic: bonded by their lust for fame and the illusion of their own celebrity, broken by their twisted relationship and their fear of failure. Sometimes all that’s left to do is dance! They are cocky, they are clueless, and they are delightfully good at it!

Feral and vulnerable, honest and calculated, there is no one way to navigate the rules in the game of romance. Everyone plays but does anyone truly win or lose

I am Martin Sharry company: martin sharry photo: ste murray

The facts: my Grandfather, my Uncle and I share the same name. We coexist under the one roof on Inishere, Aran Islands. And the fiction: this show looks back through three generations, reflecting on migrations and the loss of language.

The Revolution Will Be Televised, ReTweeted & Av ailable on 4od company: abie philbin bowman photo: simon lazewski


What do we want? GLOBAL JUSTICE! When do we want it? IN 140 CHARACTERS! We all grew up hearing about “800 years of British oppression”. But that ended in the 1920s. Then the Catholic Church took over. Now we’re finally standing up to the Church — and the Troika takes control of Ireland.
