IN 2022, WE GIVE IN 2022, WE OURSELVES WHOLLY OURSELVES TO ALL THINGS: TO ALL THIN

Welcome to Dublin Fringe Festival. 430 artists are set to overrun the city with unmissable art experiences for 16 days and nights. They’re reflecting. They’re raging. They’re ready to party. Expect spit-takes, strangeness and take-it-straight-to-the-group-chat scenes as their incandescent ideas come to life. This year’s festival celebrates the glorious, the curious and the improbable. From the top of the sky-line’s tallest buildings, to the peace of your bathtub at home, in streetside confession boxes and on offroad bus tours, our 2022 programme is packed with performances that will shift your perspective and offer you release. We’re amplifying the artists who create space for communal reflection and shared laughter. We’re shining a spotlight on the weird, the hyper-local and those who forge their own path. We’re introducing the brightest new talent – more than half of the artists between these pages are presenting work at the festival for the very first time. Join us in prizing togetherness and truth, beauty and defiance, silliness and play with 586 performances in 27 venues, all made with love and grit by some of the most courageous artists we know. They are the pied pipers and master poets, deep thinkers and agents of change, joy foragers and maestros of mess who make the city worth living in. So, let’s go. Follow an artist someplace new. Make memories with friends and strangers. Round-up your pals. Bring a date. Bring your granny. Lose the run of yourself with us, this September.

GET LOST. GET FOUND. GET TOGETHER. RUTH MCGOWAN ARTISTIC DIRECTOR & CEO P3


CURATORIAL CURATORIAL C STATEMENT STATEMENT ST

DUBLIN FRINGE FESTIVAL TICKETS ARE ON SALE The artists in this year’s programme are bringing us abundance: prepare to be overwhelmed by the sensorial, the strange, the now and the next. Breathe out and give in to the plethora of ideas at play. These artists are expunging hidden pasts, taking us to not-so distant futures and vitally, viscerally, luxuriating in the now. Some powers have been hard won and these artists are holding space for remembrance – of the small, the slow, and the togetherness of it all. This year’s artists are issuing a reminder to exist urgently, to dance uproariously and to embrace the full breadth of your inner oddities. They’re calling us to move forward, but to do so in community. Travel with them: overindulge, go wild, think too much, exhaust yourselves. Let’s move.

An adrenaline shot for the city. This extraordinary assembly is an outpouring, a reckoning, a release and a party. The new show from the makers of international smash-hit RIOT is a howling, raucous, soul-stirring celebration of community, regeneration, and the magic of collective catharsis. WAKE lifts the veil between worlds, where club culture meets Irish tradition in an exquisite frenzy of ritual, rave, grief and joy; conjuring up the spirits of the good times, of the marginalised, of everything that’s been and gone, toasting yesterday’s passing as we dream up tomorrow, together. This glittering Irish Pop-wake embraces the ecstasy of letting go, the wild abandon of the all-nighter and the beauty of transformation in a rabble-rousing night of gut-punching theatre, soaring spoken word, stomping beats and outrageous circus that will leave us dancing into the dawn.

Dublin’s sharpest drag artists and trans comedians put the alt-right through the ringer in a biting satire of a media environment that not only enables hate speech, but cheers it on. No faux-outrage too faux, no dog-whistle too shrill, no moral panic too panicky. Conspiracy theories with better contour: fake news has never looked this fabulous and mass hysteria has never been this, well, hysterical. Any familiar (and litigious) Irish faces are entirely coincidental.

An exclusive night-time adventure in the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin. This meditative and immersive night-walk will guide you through a series of light and sound installations, exploring Dublin’s iconic Botanic Gardens as you have never seen them before. Responding to our relationship with the natural world, these intimate artworks explore the cultural remnants humans have created through our love of nature. Empty bird cages, a playful song, the insides of cuckoo clocks and fragments from botanical dictionaries are intertwined, telling their story through unforgettable sound and light installations in the serene surroundings of the gardens after dark. This is one artist’s attempt to make sense of a world, in which a passion for nature is mixed with an anxiety for its future.

Facilitated by an unqualified contemporary survivalist, the school’s syllabus revises and scraps outdated forms of survivalism with the aim of (re)imagining new ways of living. Departing from archaic survivalist endeavours that promise not improvement but rather endless struggle, this coach trip will lead you through a journey of queer, ecological and abolitionist coalitions which have paved pathways for thriving rather than just surviving. So why not buckle-up and enjoy the ride. Who knows, by the end of this 90-minute crash course, you too may graduate as an unqualified contemporary survivalist!

Two sisters on a graveyard jaunt at sunrise. R, the prodigal child returned from NYC with a good job. E, the older sister, an artist without work who splits her time between self-doubt and conviction. They coffee before work these days - sip from takeaway receptacles and do laps of the dead. What does it mean to be an artist who no longer makes art? Why are younger sisters always so infuriatingly competent, and what is it about graveyards that gives us such solace? This artist-led audio experience tackles these questions as you coffee and walk around one of Dublin’s hidden gem parks.

In an ambitious participatory project, an environmental artist collaborates with a squabble of gulls, artists, scientists and locals to craft a bird’s-eye view of the city. A fizzy experiment that glides between performance, ornithology and empathy. Expect homemade beaks, sound, outdoor walking and a sideways look at the migration of gulls to cities. Just like us humans.

Dion can’t find the perfect man, so he decides to create his own. With the rules of manhood colliding with Dion’s own world view, he explores what it means to be a man in an increasingly alt-right world and how he (they?) might not be a man at all. A half-serious, half-comedic, mostly absurd love letter to the femme queers shedding an identity and realising one’s own place might be outside the gender binary. That, and a wee sprinkle of how all of this could lead to fascism.

Days later she returned a changed woman, but that’s not all that changed during her digital detox. The world had entered a global pandemic, her boyfriend had ghosted and her mother announced she kinda might die! A hilarious show about positivity versus the world, Anna will have you in stitches with real stories that are truly unbelievable.

EFT WEFT WEFT

WEFT IS AN 18-MONTH TALENT-DEVELOPMENT AND NETWORK-BUILDING PROJECT FOR EARLY CAREER BLACK ARTISTS AND ARTISTS OF COLOUR MORE BROADLY IN IRELAND. OVER THE LAST YEAR, THIS LANDMARK BODY OF WORK HAS RESULTED IN NEW CONNECTIONS, NEW IDEAS AND IMPACTFUL DIALOGUE. The Weft Studio Group was an initiative for racialised artists who wanted to make their own work on their own terms. Together with facilitator Dylan Coburn Gray, these 13 artists - of different disciplines but equal talent, rigour, promise - shared skills with one another; presented work-in-progress to a peer audience; took in shows in London and Dublin that were provocative foils to the artists’ own work. You can find work by four of the Weft Studio Artists in this year’s festival programme – see pages 25, 43, 57 and 63. This is not the end of the Weft Studio - it’s a set of evolving partnerships. We look forward to more ideas born in this Weft Studio Group featuring in future editions of Dublin Fringe Festival. Visionary artists and organisers Origins Eile moved into Fringe HQ as our first ever FRINGE LAB Associate Company. They are working across the year to create meaningful opportunities for networking, collaboration and creative growth, facilitating free events and workshops while also developing their organisation through a number of international mentorships. Weft brought heroes Hot Brown Honey back to Ireland! This summer they are assembling an extraordinary crew of Femme Black artists and Artists of Colour to create Hive City Legacy: Dublin Chapter. That’s right – an Ireland based crew of amazing multidisciplinary performers are creating a brand-new show as part of this global movement. Read more on page 6. Want to join the Weft community?

DIGITAL DISCOVERY EXCHANGE

“WHERE YE FROM?” Growler

Through the wild ride of the past two years some positives have come to the surface, including a new focus for many artists around innovation in digital practice. We are particularly excited to see where things can go when artists embrace the digital and create something that simply couldn’t exist IRL. We have partnered with our friends on the other side of the world, Melbourne Fringe Festival, to share some of the most ambitious work from Ireland and Australia that has been created specifically for digital presentation. The two projects, one from each nation, that demonstrate work that engenders discovery, innovation and experimentation within digital space are selected from each festivals open call. Both shows will feature in the Dublin and Melbourne Fringe programmes this September and October.

Marina works in a 24-hour dry cleaners in a lonely Dublin. The streets feel like a film set and everyone looks like a stranger. Every day, accompanied only by radio broadcasts from musical weatherman Anthony Murphy, she creates stories from the clothes her customers won’t come to collect. Written by Iseult Deane, this is a play about film stars, banshees, build-to-rent apartments and losing the sensation of touch. A demi-opera dedicated to clean clothes.

What else does a young Black man have to say if it isn’t about racism? Too busy trying to be an adult, leaving Nigeria and settling in Ireland, he has to find a way to hold on to both worlds. With a story woven through prose and poetry, you will shift in your seat as you are teased with the discomfort of this immigrant settling into a new land. Take sides as loyalty to home is torn by the promise of the new. But the real question is, where do you buy a hot pepper in Lucan?

CORRUPTING CARE

The world of care is in flux. To the backdrop of unaffordable cities and dated healthcare systems, we find ourselves forming our own care practices that work for us. These deviant, bold acts are hidden, and reject care as soft and cuddly. The performance will see alternative carers take to the stage to share their untamed practices. Inspired by queer, crip and cyberfeminist theory, the show will upend perceptions of care, moving away from infantilisation and towards self-determination.

Matthew and Michael have both always wanted one thing. A sibling. Now all they have to do is meet. Easy right? But how do you introduce yourself to someone you should already know? Filled with anxiety, hope and no questions unasked. A tale of two brothers united at last.

DANCE DOUBLE BILL

DANCE DOUBLE BILL

Instagram lives, augmented reality, the metaverse: What are we leaving behind as we move ever further into the virtual realm, and how do we cope as our physical and digital selves grow more distant from one another? Through hypnotic, powerful movement, two dancers grapple with these questions, confronting an uncomfortable reality. This performance is a physically poetic exploration of the complicated relationships we all have with our avatars.

Elon Musk is planting chips in pig brains. VOYAGR, a lonely online streamer turned terrorist, has a terrible feeling he’s doing so much more. As she prepares an act of terrorism that will save all future pigs, she takes us down a path of absurd realisations, wild dancing and pure heartbreak. It’s about billionaires, animals and the online world. It’s about being too insignificant to make things change. It’s about pigs: smart, cute, and in dire need of our help.

Are you a disgusting liar full of absolute shit? Tom is. And he thinks you might be too. Tom is a charismatic people-pleaser, an expert in empathy, but someone who struggles with the truth. Join him in the jungle of shame as he seeks to exorcise ghosts, stop sucking in his tummy and discover the joy in being honest. In this solo comedy show, directed by Davey Kelleher, Tom begs the question, if I never told another lie and was just myself, would any of my loved ones still love me?

The somewhat true story of a 99-year-old man who moves home to Ocracoke, the strange little island of his birth, after 80 years gone. Performed to a live score from pianist Johnny Taylor, this show imagines his return and his unlikely friendship with young pregnant woman Deena. Washed up, they wait out a hurricane at the dusk and dawning of their two lives.
