Duel: Sons Of Liberty II
Experience Dublin Fringe Festival (England/Germany/Ireland/Latvia)
Sons Of Liberty (Norway) An edgy piece of sit-com-stand-up complete with fruit fights, dance numbers and even a complimentary massage. Set in an Eastern European hotel/low-budget soft porn studio, this wild, coarse and hilarious two-hander twists stereotypes and turns popular culture on its head. Heroes, whores, therapists, homosexuals, astronauts and even Mel Gibson’s Braveheart make an appearance in this rapid, challenging and bitingly witty production. Supported by The Fund for Sound and Picture, Norwegian Ministry for Culture, Kulturhuset Hausmania and Nordic Black Theater.

How do you explain to a German musician that its time to do a workshop in Latvian Contemporary Dance? Or inform an English circus act that they’ll need to adjust their juggling to go with German rock music? How does a Latvian Dancer tell an Irish guy he’s cutting off her breathing during a dance lift? Young Fringe has selected youth groups from Ireland, UK, Germany and Latvia in theatre, dance, music and circus who will work intensively over 21 days to create a show that reflects and amalgamates their cultures, disciplines and their artistic skills.
