We’ve got works of complexity, substance and guts that refuse easy answers. Each is fuelled by an unquenchable urgency and made by outlaws, witches, messers, pioneers and heroes. The stage is set for an indelible edition of Dublin Fringe Festival. Make sure you can say you were there. — Ruth McGowan, Festival Director

They offer balms of beauty and wonder, speak potent truths to power, distil rage into action and brew art from the inexpressible. They prescribe parties to heal our fight-fatigued souls and soothe us with filthy laughs, the adrenaline of chance, the euphoria of limitless possibility. Joy as an act of resistance.

In 2018, we’re bringing you a festival of antidotes. These artist apothecaries have formulated their solutions, cures and divine art elixirs — all yours for the taking.

DREAMERS AND DOERS, WORDSMITHS AND RADICALS, CRAFTERS, GRAFTERS, PIRATES AND BAD BITCHES: WELCOME TO DUBLIN FRINGE FESTIVAL. YOUR WILDEST DREAMS HAVE SET THE AGENDA.

After-dark mavens and the best of buzzers, you are cordially invited to our Festival Club. The Festival Club is a place for the Fringe community to come together. Remember we told you we’d be taking up space in the city? We’re starting by claiming a space for artists and audiences to gather on Dame St, right in the heart of the festival action. We’re staging a 16-day Fringe takeover of Hely’s Bar and making ourselves feel at home. Expect glitter. Toast your successes, make new friends, turn a look and have a bop. It's exclusively for Dublin Fringe artists and audiences so you’ll need to flash your artist pass or a Fringe ticket at the door. On the weekends, we’re going out out. We’re planning a lifesaving DJ line-up 'til 3am on Friday and Saturday nights. Come to the Festival Club to connect, to see your pals for post-show pints and maybe to dream up some new ideas.

AFTER

This is it. It’s over. The end of days. Humanity and the world as we know it are ending and we’ve stared deep into the abyss to make a documentary for you. It’s a rough cut, but it’s the best we could do under the circumstances. A forewarning for how you would cope and what you would do. To see what it really looks and feels like to know the end is nigh. Using live-stream film, physicality and performance, we see the stages of the breakdown, the fallout, all that passed.

Investigating our very human fear of endings, AFTER will take you into the beyond, the bit after the end, when it’s already over. It’s a relief... almost. Funded by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon. Supported by Dublin City Council, Dance Ireland, Dansearena Nord (Norway), D.ID Dance Identity (Austria) and Dublin Dance Festival, in association with Project Arts Centre.

dick walsh & james moran Dick Walsh and James Moran are staging news articles published on 13th March 2012. Or in other words, they’re examining a dying media using a dead artform. News articles are essentially information and typically lose their value after you’ve read them once. But theatre is a place where things must be repeated. This experiment

A show created and performed by Fionnuala Gygax, Danielle Galligan and Venetia Bowe. About moving. Moving forward from past oppressions

EVERYTHING CAN BE DISMANTLED

“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules absurd.” - Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities Dublin is building again. Cranes stand on the horizon, happily constructing glittering glass nests. But what other models of building are possible? What other models

of living are possible? An interactive fantasy about the politics of housing and a conversation about alternatives, this is a show about the spaces we live in now and the spaces we desire. Presented by Discotheque Collective. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.

samira elagoz

An award-winning performance about violence and intimacy. Samira Elagoz takes us along on her personal research project across three continents. From online platforms to close encounters, she showcases gender relations in all their brutal and wonderful ambivalence. Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power, reinventing an autonomous expression of sexuality and attempts to relate to men after being raped. Confrontational, unrestrainedly funny and deeply touching, the performance explores desire, the power of femininity and the male gaze in a world in which the virtual and the real are inextricably intertwined. Cock, Cock.. Who’s There? won the Prix Jardin d'Europe at Impulstanz in 2017.

Supported by the Finnish Cultural Foundation, Blooom Award By Warsteiner and SNDO - School for New Dance Development. Presented with the support of The Finnish Institute in London. For audiences aged 16+.

“If I were a seahorse, he’d be pregnant.” At 35, Mara is an overqualified underachiever. She works part-time in an aquarium, eats ice-cream for breakfast and likes ticking “single” on forms. She fancies the notion of a threesome... but you can’t have a threesome if you have a baby. A surreal underwater experience about trying to be grown-up and wishing you were a seahorse. Award-winning Christiane O Mahony's sharp writing is blended with animation and videography with direction by Davey Kelleher and design by Brian Mitchell. Supported by The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Rough Magic Theatre Company and The Everyman. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.

Sinéad arrives at her sister Ciara’s door in London, all set for a weekend of respite from caring for their mother, Eileen. At least, that’s what Ciara thinks this visit is about. Sinéad has other ideas. Over one long weekend, they are forced to make a choice that will affect their lives forever.

Oh, and there’s also the small matter of the family cat. This laugh-out-loud dark comedy asks: how far are you willing to go for your family? Produced by Wildcard.

Based on titles of shows, lines in the brochure or the vague recollections of audience members, they’ll attempt to recreate the best bits from the best shows. And all on the spot.

Abie Philbin Bowman has one grandparent from each province in Ireland so he married a foreigner, just to be on the safe side. Now they’re parents, even though Abie absolutely hates the phrase “speaking as a parent...“ He prefers the phrase “speaking as someone who successfully uses contraception, and therefore actually has time to read the news...” From the writer/performer of Jesus: The Guantanamo Years, Eco Friendly Jihad and Developing the Country as a Hole, a comedy show for anyone who suspects that happy parents are really prisoners in denial, posting cute photos of their jailers on Facebook.

Getting it wrong has never felt so right! DREAMGUN amuse and exasperate cinephiles in equal measure with their skewed, joke-stuffed and wholly unrehearsed takes on established cinematic favourites. In this special Fringe Binge edition, DREAMGUN bring their classics together for a movie marathon to remember.

In this debut stand-up comedy hour, he shares his coming-of-age story about a boy who was brought to the edge of his own life, and who lives to tell the hilarious tale of how sexcapades, drug overdoses and a surprise baby meant that he was, in his own way, born again.

Hooker by day, performer by night, Director of Sex Workers Alliance by the balls. This feminist thought she was a hippy, but really she was just poor. Check out “Ireland’s Favourite Courtesan” (Sunday Independent) with her back against a brick wall. Maybe she likes working outside to keep the overheads low. Failing prostitution she’ll seek refuge as a standup comic — at least they have a union.

Fun-loving popstar twins Trevor and Elliot Century (AKA ‘Trelliot’) are more accustomed to talent show judges than those of the legal variety. Alas, after being served a summons by a dodgy merch salesman, the pair encounter a miserable magistrate who has no time for their larks - or their tunes. In this courtroom musical that’s more “two giddy boys” than Twelve Angry Men, Giles Brody (RTÉ’s Irish Pictorial Weekly) and Bobby Aherne (art-pop act No Monster Club) take you, the jury, on a bizarre, toe-tapping adventure about fame, family, friendship and aliens.

RADIO

ddr. is Dublin Fringe Festival’s first ever virtual venue. Dublin Digital Radio is a unique space, where Ireland’s left-of-centre talent finds a home for music, discussion, experimentation and radical ideas.

DDR X FRINGE:

this is not your national broadcaster

ddr. and Fringe have been thinking about the digital and the physical:- What does it mean to create work that lives only online, that is non-downloadable? What does it mean to make work that comes from diverse spaces and voices? What can we communicate across the airwaves that we cannot express in person? We asked for artistic responses to these questions and we got a dynamic body of sonic works that are truly singular, engaged with urgent social and political conversations, and fizzing with ideas. These three intimate radio encounters are appointment listening. Tune in to listen.dublindigitalradio.com during Fringe to hear these new pieces debut.

ecosystem. From scorching server farms, to leaky data clouds, to the fibreoptic cables at the base of the ocean - all converge into the live stream. In this gripping radio nature documentary we take you on a journey through the natural world of these unnatural creations. Discover field recordings of information-munching creatures, web-hosts and sembiotes, and farmers raising crops of harvestable data. We invite you to take a dip in the stream to find out what role you have to play in this fascinating cycle of artificial life.

Three performers dance their memories and hopes in this raw allegory of life. It’s about people using whatever they can to make their own perfect solo. It’s not always clear who’s assisting who. Philip Connaughton, long-time collaborator Lucia Kickham and French dance artist Magali Caillet are accompanied by video footage of Madeleine, Philip’s mother, who suffers from advanced dementia. Her ancient and beautiful presence makes us

look at how we, as society, deal with the ageing body.

We continuously edit our past. The present moment affects our memories, through the very process of reconstructing them. What can we hold on to as they alter or even disappear completely? Examining the imperfect, unstable nature of our mind through movement, sound and video. The audience, along with three dancers, are immersed in a strange, beautiful, fragmented world. Surrounded by a sound score of whispers and fractured voices,

THE PEOPLESWAY dance among other things

A devised, immersive movement-theatre piece transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. The PeopleSway shares stories of the heart, home and homeless in Ireland, revealing beautiful communal truths no longer only at the fringes. “In mythos and fairy tales, deities and spirits test the hearts of humans by showing up in robes, rags, silver sashes, or with muddy feet... as a man who cannot speak, or an animal who can. The great powers are testing to see if humans have yet learned to recognise the

greatness of soul in all its varying forms.” Dancing, sometimes we sway in an unexpected way to a garden overgrown, encountering beautiful beasts who balance between what's expected and unexpected of beings. Supported by D-Light Studios, Dance Ireland and Dublin Simon Community. This venue has wheelchair accessibility, however please contact our box office prior to booking.

ali & henrik / reckless ross CIKADA Two acrobats create a world between the harmonious and the absurd. In this world, lines are blurred between human and nature. Ali Stanger and Henrik Gard create a mutual acrobatic language of finesse and honesty. A fun, thoughtful and humorous display of rich imagery and dynamic riveting movement. Cikada developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Dublin Fringe Festival.

SPIT Push hard, stand up, and spit back. Stop being hijacked by the consumer culture, by spectacle, by tits and teeth and nipple tassels. This show is a celebration of the fierce and wild. Brutality balanced by beauty. Circus that challenges set ideas of gender stereotypes and female expectations in society. A political and evocative one-woman circus. SPIT directed by Ken Fanning of Tumble Circus.

NETWORK AND SHOWCASE

I AM DYNAMITE curated by roisin agnew

When concepts of free speech and free thinking have been coopted by conservatives, how should artists reclaim these for themselves? We think of artists as agitators and provocateurs, yet in complex times it feels like there is an imperative for art not to offend. From Michelle Wolf to the naked child nymphs in the Manchester Art Gallery, questions around what is acceptable and in good taste seem to be

98

everywhere. And we have to pick a side. Across two days of debates, comedy, and installations I Am Dynamite will explore the role of artistic dissent and causing offence to celebrate the fact that we’re all free to disagree.

Sorcha LOVES weddings. Just like the other girls in the parish, she’s been dying for her own day since forever and ever. The thing is, she has just run away from her own reception. Has she gone mad? Or is this the first moment of clarity she’s had in years? Perched on the edge of her “perfectly planned” life, Sorcha is pure ragin’ at the dawning reality that she’s never really listened to herself. Can she ever go back? This is a darkly funny tale of young love in rural Ireland and a lifelong quest to settle down.

Follow the lives and family histories of three young men as they grow up in Coolock on Dublin's northside. What shapes them and entices them to a life of crime? Examining issues of class, religion and identity, this new play is an unflinching exploration of the Irish psyche, bringing our collective guilts, secrets and flaws to the surface.

To challenge the bureaucracy of Irish political life and to save the local school of music from being converted into apartments for racehorses, Brendan Galileo is determined to join the ranks of the European Parliament. Alas, in the City of Tribes he is a man without a spear, his previous electoral efforts little more than a novelty act. In a last-ditch attempt to dramatically improve his public profile, he must represent his country in the most vicious diplomatic catfight in the continent, the Eurovision Song Contest.

Amy's worked hard for what she has, and whatever she sets her sights on, she gets.

SPACES FRINGE LAB provides year-round practical and artistic support, responding to the needs of both developing and established artists, technicians, producers and practitioners. FRINGE LAB is both a space and a platform of activities for training and learning. Professional performing artists need somewhere to work. FRINGE LAB was used by over 200 companies for 6,000+ hours in the last year. Fringe is devoted to cultivating connections: artists access in-house expertise from marketing to producing and everything in between! STUDIO 1 – STUDIO SPACE A dedicated space for the development of new work. It’s available free of charge 12 hours a day, seven days a week on an application basis. See fringefest.com for more! THE CELL – OFFICE SPACE A quieter office space dedicated to writers and producers who need silence to work or write. This small office space is available from Monday to Friday, 10am – 6pm and is booked in advance. FRINGE LAB FOYER A drop-in facility with free Wi-Fi, a computer and access to printing facilities. Available on a first come, first served basis Monday to Friday, 10am – 6pm. STUDIO 2 – SPACE FOR HIRE Need a space to rehearse? Or to hold auditions, meetings, workshops or classes? Studio 2 at FRINGE LAB is available to hire! For very competitive rates, use this bright and spacious room overlooking Meeting House Square in Temple Bar all year round. Just drop us a line at hello@fringefest.com or call 01 6706106 to make your booking.

ARTISTS Lots of remarkable artists joined the Fringe team this year. At FRINGE LAB, we want to mould our resources to suit the needs of the artist. That’s why in 2018 we are shaking things up. Our new initiatives aren’t just about physical space: we’re thinking about a sense of belonging and a community.

www.fringefest.com

FRINGE LAB

FRINGE LAB Artist Office A free, shared, lockable office space at Fringe HQ that artists can make their own. Writer Dylan Coburn Gray; actor, writer and producer Stephen Colfer; and theatre director Mollie Molumby join us from April 2018 – April 2019. FRINGE LAB Associate Artists A pilot scheme for artists who need space to grow without feeling the pressure to fit into a specific support model. We’re providing space for making, meetings and workshops. But we’re taking our lead from this year’s associate artists: Change of Address Collective and Trans Live Art Salon. FRINGE LAB Hot Deskers Feeling isolated as a freelancer has been a recurring issue in our conversations with artists. We’ve opened up more hot desk space at FRINGE LAB. Artists for this pilot programme are writer and actor Noelle Brown; Jeda de Brí and Finbarr Doyle of Sickle Moon Productions; and comedian Davey Reilly. FRINGE LAB Summer Programme Check out fringefest.com/fringelab to catch up on our Summer Programme. If you would like to find out more about FRINGE LAB on an ongoing basis, mail hello@fringefest.com to be included in our FRINGE LAB mailing list. FRINGE LAB is funded by the Arts Council and Dublin City Council’s Arts Office.

Hundreds of artists spend thousands of hours making work for Dublin Fringe Festival each year. Their ambition and hard work is inspiring. The Awards celebrate just a handful of the most breath-taking, rule-breaking, legendmaking moments from each festival. Our panel of judges recognise the extraordinary skill and talent on display and acknowledge some of the stand-outs in this year’s festival.

Fishamble New Writing Award Awarded to an emerging Irish (or Irelandbased) writer for a new play. The award includes dramaturgical support by Fishamble: The New Play Company.

Best Production For the show that has it all!

Next Stage Wild Card A bursary to be part of the Next Stage at Dublin Theatre Festival with Theatre Forum.

Best Design Outstanding lighting, sound, scenic, projection, costume or overall design. Best Performers Two of this year’s brightest stars will take home this accolade. Best Ensemble The standout ensemble – the heartbeat of a show. Judges’ Choice Awards Three awards to acknowledge something that defies categorisation but must be recognised for its brilliance.

First Fortnight Award The winner will perform at the First Fortnight Festival; whose mission is mental health awareness, challenging prejudice and ending stigma.

Bewley’s Café Theatre Little Gem Award The most exciting show that’s under 60 minutes with a handsome prize: a twoweek run at Bewley’s Café Theatre and €2,000 for the remount. Spirit of Wit: Moira Brady Averill Award A monetary prize and unique award for an artist willing to take risks and whose work defies categorisation with bold and unconventional material. In memory of Moira Brady Averill, who had the power to transform space and thought through alchemical wit.

AWARDS 2018

Next year is a big one for Dublin Fringe Festival: we celebrate our 25th birthday in 2019! The very first Fringe took place in Dublin in September 1995. At the time, the team said that “at last, young theatre companies and performers from Ireland and Europe have the chance to put on exciting and innovative shows…while entertainment-hungry audiences need no longer roam the streets in a vain search for a less conventional kind of night out.”

Support Fringe Give a little and get a lot more. Go to www.fringefest.com or say hello at development@fringefest.com.

We’ll be celebrating our 25th birthday in style next year with a bumper programme of events across the capital. And we need your help! If Fringe has brought you joy, adventure or just some great nights out since the nineties, please get involved. Help us to commission the work you need to see in 2019 by donating €25 for our 25th birthday. For all of the details, go to www.fringefest.com #FRINGE25
