Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016 is the boldest, wildest and most spectacular yet. This edition is going to be fabled – you’ll want to say you were there. It’s a knock out sixteen days full of events that will give you indelible, powerful and magical experiences. fringefest.com | 1850 374 643


We’re busting up taboos, pushing boundaries. This is where trends get set, where new styles of work and ideas are born. The radicals and experimentalists, the artists whose projects just don’t fit in the box, the crafters, the grafters, the misfits and the clarion voices thrive at Tiger Dublin Fringe. So do your favourite faces and some of the country’s most loved acts. This is the festival where artists make their mark. Formal innovation, weird-out-wild experiences and just having a great time are hallmarks of every Fringe. Fringe 2016 is about big nights out. Spiegeltent is back in all its glittery glory. This time we’ve got the keys to Dublin’s favourite garden in the lush and historic environs of Merrion Square. GET US! A site this beautiful calls for a spectacular show. We’ve got the world premiere from the toast of the town. THISISPOPBABY celebrates their 10th phenomenal year with their most ambitious and entertaining show yet. RIOT is going to fire on all cylinders – siren songs, drag royalty, jockstraps, hurling helmets and sizzling spoken word. A show this powerful, inspired and ferocious is not to be missed. It’s not just RIOT that’s rich with action and glamour. Australia’s Hot Brown Honey offers cabaret with a political pulse. From the people who brought you Briefs and co-created by the stupendous Lisa Fa’alafi and Busty Beatz, Hot Brown Honey delivers scorching number after number of burlesque, beat box and banging tunes. Bring your friends; you’ll torch tyranny and burn up the dance floor. Comedy maven and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon and her dashing companion Major Scales unearth their favourite pop tunes with The Vaudevillians. Get up close and personal with leading comics, take in sensational gigs from your favourite Irish indie bands and revel in experiential Spiegel parties. Fringe artists will investigate ideas of consequence and possibility, and bring us stories bigger than ourselves. Fiction comes to the forefront this year via new ways of story-telling and radical reimaginings of the traditional ones. We asked artists to get intrepid, to bring us their most urgent ideas, concepts and stories and to do it from the pit of their gut. They’re surpassing all expectations and are taking us places we’ve never been. The artists of Fringe 2016 are giving us idealists corrupted by power, examinations of politics and radicalism, couples dealing with cyberethics and sexploits gone awry. These shows give your heart and soul a workout as we witness how it all plays out. We’ve got an icon in our midst – New York underground’s legendary Penny Arcade will battle against the gentrification of our souls, in a copresentation with the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage. Also at the Peacock, choreographer Aoife McAtamney leads an ensemble of spirited performers in Age of Transition. Collapsing Horse assembles their biggest ensemble yet to retell the Roman epic, The Aeneid in their signature playful and high

dramatic style. Artist Aoibheann Greenan ritualises Wagner in a visual maelstrom of bondage and raveinspired totems, strobe lights and gold lamé at the RHA. We’ve gone crazy for talkshows – Alison Spittle, Lords of Strut and Dick Walsh each make the format their own. It’s a city takeover too. Yacht clubs, comedy bars, galleries, the Docklands and your favourite Temple Bar theatres come alive for Dublin’s landmark festival. We’ve been busy strengthening our network with exciting cultural organisations abroad. We’re delighted to be collaborating with major cultural partners in Greece, Germany, Lithuania and Portugal as part of a network funded by the Goethe-Institut. Co-producers of Brokentalkers’ new work This Beach, the GoetheInstitut has enabled us to bring Cláudia Dias’ searing Monday: Watch Out for the Right! to the National Stadium. She’s putting her dukes up in a fight you don’t want to miss. On the Canadian front, Fringe has found a kindred spirit in the vibrant SummerWorks Performance Festival – Toronto’s leading independent arts festival. With the support of the Ireland Park Foundation, we’re proud to host maverick artist Liz Peterson with her travelogue meets dance meets comedy Performance About a Woman and see Irish artists head off to SummerWorks in Toronto this August. We’re so thankful for the stalwart support and close partnership with our core funders the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Dublin City Council Arts 5 Office and Fáilte Ireland. A special thank you to Dublin City Council Events Office for helping us bring our Spiegeltent to life in Merrion Square. Our three year title partnership with Tiger Beer has grown from strength to strength – this year, Tiger Beer has raised the bar yet again in their support of Fringe and independent Irish arts. As ever, we’re proud to share their stripes. This line-up is phenomenal. Diverse, compelling, magical moments abound. There’s something for everyone. Twice or three times over. There are artists you know and love making huge leaps, making their next and best thing. You’ll get acquainted with new voices, new talent, new combinations of makers from across disciplines. Fringe is the kind of festival where you can always hedge your bets; you’re certain to get bravery, quality, ambition. It’s the festival where you jump into the fray along with the hundreds of artists who will thrill Dublin this September. Fringe is made for adventurous types. The kind of person who likes to think big, laugh themselves sick and leave it all on the dance floor. The kind of person who hashes it out after the applause with mates, gets swept up by romance and won over by grit. That’s a lot of people in Dublin. That’s most certainly, definitely you. Here’s your Fringe. Enjoy!

— Kris Nelson, Festival Director and Ruth McGowan, Programme Manager

Don’t be Lonely Productions and Aurora Nova present

Mad, risqué and uniquely eccentric. Critically acclaimed, award-winning Gaulier-trained clown, Trygve Wakenshaw presents his beautifully strange stream-of-consciousness idiocy in Nautilus. His hilarious hit physical comedies consistently sell out at festivals around the world. Nautilus is the third and final instalment in the Underwater Trilogy of solo-shows with aquatic titles (Kraken, Squidboy). It’s the biggest and most daring, exploring both the form of mime and asking why we have an imagination: what is its function? Perhaps we dream so we can make the world a better place.

This Is How We Fly Dublin / Stockholm / Lansing

Four musicians, each rooted in different cultures and musical vocabularies, each on the cusp of their most fertile and creative years. Brought together by Dublin Fringe Festival in 2010, their collective pedigree includes collaborations with The Gloaming, The Chieftans, Darol Anger and Gjallarhorn, along with work in theatre, dance and contemporary music. A sublime Irish fiddler, a sophisticated Appalachian hard shoe dancer, a thoughtful Dublin jazzman, and a lyrical Swedish percussionist: together they have been redefining the melodic and sonic possibilities of their own styles to create something truly unique. Event subject to licence. Suitable for ages 16+. Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent / guardian 25+.

1Dee Deirdre O’Kane

After a seven-year break from stand up, during which she had babies, made a movie in Vietnam and became the mother of Moone Boy, Deirdre O’Kane returns with a brand new show. She is definitely older but is she wiser? What has she learned from being a stay at home mum, achieving the glory of middle-age and chasing after collagen as it attempts to leave her life forever? She reveals all (well, nearly all) in 1Dee.

Jason Byrne’s brand new show has everything you’ve come to expect from “the outright king of live comedy” (The Times) plus ducks, false chins, portable igloos, bewildered owls and much, much more. The star of Wild Things (Sky 1) and The Snaptastic Show (TV3) has gone back to his comedy roots, probably so he can pull them up and use them as a prop as well.

RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon and her cabaret co-star Major Scales star in bawdy, rowdy, raucous musical comedy The Vaudevillians. The impossible premise? The Vaudevillians, a fictional 1920s duo, were victims of a devastating avalanche and buried under two tons of sleet and snow, instantly freezing them alive. Thawing out nearly a century later, they discover that pop artists have stolen their music and passed it off as their own – and they’re not going to stand for it. Wigs will fly as they perform hits from the likes of Janis Joplin and Gloria Gaynor in the style of Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. Vintage cabaret with a twist of drag. Event subject to licence.

Monday: Watch Out for the Right! Cláudia Dias Lisbon

fringefest.com | 1850 374 643


31

Clenched fists, full contact, one thing is certain: Cláudia and Jaime are going for the mouth, literally and metaphorically. The first of choreographer Cláudia Dias’ seven performances to be created over the next seven years reconstructs a boxing match. Part of a community that has been forced to the mat many times, they will shed blood, sweat and tears as they pummel each other with arguments and reveal enlightening truths. The feeling of solidarity between peers, reinforced in combat when they recognise each other as equals, stands in contrast to the oppression they free themselves from through fighting. From these opposing forces comes enough friction to move from words to action.

This Beach Brokentalkers Dublin 33

A private beach inhabited by a family; a European family. They are the owners of the beach. The beach has been ‘in their family’ for generations. The family celebrate a wedding, a union between two sides; each of whom can offer something to the other. Security, prosperity, progeny. During the wedding celebration a stranger arrives on the shore of their beach. The family must decide how to deal with this stranger. A response to the current refugee crisis gripping Europe and the notion of sovereignty of one people over a piece of land; and the lengths people will go to bar entry to their dominion. Presented as part of EUROPOLY at Tiger Dublin Fringe in cooperation with the Goethe Institut-Irland. Co-production: Münchner Kammerspiele/EUROPOLY and Goethe-Institut Irland in collaboration with Onassis Cultural-Centre (Athens), Sirenos – Vilnius International Theatre Festival, Teatro Maria Matos (Lisbon) and Tiger Dublin Fringe.

Override 34

Written by Stacey Gregg Directed by Sophie Motley Dublin Mark and Violet have run away from the technologyobsessed reality to raise their future child closer to nature. No enhancements, no bionic superlimbs, no shopping for perfect embryos. They want everything, from their flesh to their love to be real. But there’s no love without fear of loss. So will you get old with me? Stacey Gregg (winner Irish Times Theatre Awards Best New Play 2015) examines the boundaries of our faith in science. Turned by Sophie Motley into a digital spectacle with visceral audio visual design, an unsettlingly funny, bitter love letter to the future. Contains strong lighting effects. Supported by the Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon and Rough Magic Theatre Company. Developed at FRINGE LAB with the support of Tiger Dublin Fringe.

Bite Me Joanne McNally

This is the story of Joanne’s amaaaaaaazing diet. She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realised she’d lost her mind. Turns out it was pinned to a lost property board up in space, enjoying the view and its new found freedom. Trying to entice it back became the hardest, funniest, greatest and weirdest time of her life. Directed by Una McKevitt.

Wrongheaded Liz Roche Company

Bringing together dance, film and spoken word poetry, Wrongheaded - a dancing body’s response to the 8th amendment. This new film / performance piece sees award-winning choreographer Liz Roche collaborating with an exceptional cast of dancers, spoken word poet Elaine Feeny and film director Mary Wycherley. Constantly at odds with each other while being caught in a relationship of frustrated repetition and ritual, the performers in film and live performance find ways to physicalise the undercurrent of desperation that Irish women face today around choices for their own bodies.

Double Bill Hope Hunt Oona Doherty Belfast

41

Oona Doherty performs a distillation of the Male. Thumping sweaty theatre. Dance as virtuosic states, heaving lungs shout in the dark. Doherty takes you through a dirty Europe, on a shared nervous system. This is a physical expression of the place between the flesh and the soul. Hope Hunt is an attempt to deconstruct the stereotype of the concrete disadvantaged male, and raise it up into a Caravaggio bright white limbo. It looks to make the smicks, the spides, the hoods, the gypsies, the knackers, into the birds of paradise. It is a hunt for hope. Produced by Katie McCann. With thanks to Neil Brown original hunter. Supported by the British Council, Prime Cut Productions and The MAC (Belfast).

George Bush and Children co-presented by Dick Walsh Theatre and Pan Pan

Topical talkshows are spontaneous speech-acts. Kind of. Repeat them verbatim in a theatre, and you see that they are theatre. Sophisticated and very effective. But a form of theatre that Shakespeare could never have dreamed of. Or even Bertolt Brecht. Energy, death, the truth, surfing, speedos, sex, history, politics and the meaning of life. Everything you could want is touched upon. And even though nothing new is being said here (we’re just repeating what’s already been said); you should come to this show. The same thing is happening in every other theatre right now anyway, isn’t it?

Traitor That Lot

“First chance they get they’ll be tearing at each other like rabid dogs. Marching together today. Spite and ateing each other tomorrow.” What happens when a radical, charismatic leader from the left is within reach of government? What compromises does she need to negotiate and how will she be haunted by those she betrays? This new play written and directed by Shane Mac an Bhaird looks at the journey from activism to politics. Set in both 2026 and 2016, Traitor follows the stories of five people caught up in a changing world: their betrayals, loves and body modifications. The lies are peeling back…Ireland is about to shed its skin.

Collapsing Horse bring The Aeneid to life with their own brand of wit, imagination and indelible theatre magic.

Within it lies the foundation myth of the Roman people from which they derived their identity, and the Emperor Augustus established his divine authority. In a time of pageantry and remembrance in Ireland, this legendary tale is a celebration of myths and their complex relationship to the truth. Supported by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.

Eggsistentialism Joanne Ryan

Looking down the barrel of her final fertile years, one modern woman goes on a comical quest to uncover the ifs, hows and crucially the whys of reproducing her genes. Thinking outside the box in an effort to decide what to do with her own, eh, box, no stone is left unturned in this journey of extremes. Family, fertility experts, fortune tellers, philosophers, daytime radio and the dark recesses of the internet - all are consulted as she tries to figure out if making a life for oneself should involve making another.

Breaks Bez Kinte

“How is it possible to kill someone without a reason? I don’t know, but I didn’t have a reason.” There’s an angel on a killing spree in the city of Bremen. For more than a decade she systematically poisons everyone in her life: parents, children, lovers and friends. As the body count mounts, she layers herself in thirteen corsets, creating a dangerous illusion of beauty. This theatre piece devised by Erin Gilgen, Emma Hughes, Naomi Faughnan and Louisa Sanfey, circles the mysteries of an incredible true story about the limits of what a woman can take. Sometimes, when you can’t bend anymore, you break.

Danielle and Sarah used to be best friends when they were kids. But they’re not kids anymore. Because they’re 11. Caught on the precipice of adulthood, two very different girls try to navigate the complex and terrifying political minefield that is the school playground, a world occupied by kids who don’t know any better and adults who really should. In doing so they find solace in an unexpected source - each other. A darkly comic story about friendship, betrayal, loneliness, little break, big break, heartbreak, bike chasing and Penguins (the biscuit, not the flightless amphibian bird).

Influenced by queer performance, Primetime Investigates and the Reeling In The Years 1980s boxset, this is a show about queer activism today and republican activism in the past.

Penny Arcade is New York’s undisputed queen of the underground – an Andy Warhol Factory Superstar in the 1960s and a contemporary of Patti Smith and Debbie Harry. Driven by her magnetic rock ’n roll energy, Longing Lasts Longer is a razor sharp satire mixed live to euphoric soundscapes inspired by four decades of pop culture. Penny Arcade gave us a taste of Longing Lasts Longer at the Abbey Theatre in January 2016 as part of The Theatre of Change Symposium and now returns to Dublin with this passionate and exuberant performance. fringefest.com | 1850 374 643

The Humours of Bandon Margaret Mc Auliffe

Sligo / Dublin

“Rat tat tat tata dum diddli dee dum dum dumb…LOUDER! Don’t be afraid of that floor!” From the confines of every parochial hall in Ireland, Irish dancing champions are churned out at a massive rate. Medals and cups build up in drawing rooms and Riverdance swells a national pride, but the public aren’t privy to the blood sweat and tears that pave the way to the first place podium. For two sisters in Dublin, Irish dancing is everything and nothing. Margaret Mc Auliffe (Digging for Fire, Jezebel) examines the importance of coming first and why it matters.

A wedding is the craic; birthdays are… alright. But you can’t beat a good Irish funeral. Yeah it’s sad… but ya know what’ll help with that?

The Wickedness of Oz Kate Gilmore

To Hell in a Handbag Helen Norton & Jonathan White

Dublin “Sure what would you find there only yourself?” Waking up to a picture of Emily Murray posing in a metallic two-piece on Bondi Beach sends Debbie McInerney’s day spiralling into a mire of self-doubt. Dipping in and out of reality, this tale of love and loss merges music, movement and visual art in a romantic exploration of potential not yet fulfilled. A day in the life of a 21-year-old travel agent with a penchant for 1960s musicals. “Time passes. Listen. Time passes.”

Dublin The Secret Lives of Canon Chasuble and Miss Prism. While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess, models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity … and money. A subversively funny new take on an Irish theatrical classic. “Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination.” - Oscar Wilde

“Can I be an oracle for your desire? What do you want of this performance? What do you want of me? (mic check) Is this thing on?” In this candid solo performance, Liz Peterson ushers the audience through dance, poetry, song and standup comedy, performing the portrait of a woman and her demons. Peterson’s performance was a favourite of the 2015 SummerWorks Performance Festival (Toronto).

Fist Pump RAK

Fist Pump transports you from blissed out raves and psychedelic landscapes to stories of revolt, grief and female empowerment. RAK is a new artistic collaboration between Karen Gleeson, Áine Stapleton and Rebecca Warner. Imagine you’re in your teens. You’re at a concert, a rave on the beach, anywhere you can dance and not give a sh*t. Now travel forward in time to 2016. You’re in a theatre, there’s a naked woman on the ground, one under a pile of clothes, and another raving in a bicycle helmet. You are in the room with them for a reason. Pay close attention. Pay close attention.

Start with a Circle NeedMoreInput Dublin

Start with a circle. Continue outwards. Keep going. Stop, start over. Start with a circle. This time work inwards. Good, start again. Making progress? Getting lost? Yes. Start again. In a darkened space, a performer approaches a rope hanging from above. At the end of the rope hangs the only source of light in the space, a glowing sphere. Created by Jack Phelan and Erin Hermosa, with musical direction by Dunk Murphy (Sunken Foal), Start with a Circle throws an aerial performer, an ingénieur and a composer into the void and presses the button. Rope swings, light flickers, body turns, sound builds. An obsessive study of potential through neon-noir nothingness. Sure you wanna do this? Contains strobe lighting.

BlackCatfish Musketeer Malaprop

This is a play about people getting to know each other through screens. It doesn’t look like the Internet, but it feels like it: it’s compellingly weird, totally full on, and cruel at least as often as it’s kind. That’s because it’s about people, and most people are most of those things, no matter the medium. The people in this play are no exception. Watch them navigate doubt, trust, intimacy at a distance, and the fear of dying alone and being eaten by cats. From the award-winning makers of last year’s Fringe hit LOVE+.

Luckily, she has a couple of reliable vices that help her get by.

In this one hour stand up show comedian Emma Doran explores the world through her eyes. Sarcastic, cynical, no nonsense eyes. Emma became a mother the same year she legally became an adult. She doesn’t believe women have to retire from living when they have children. Sure, if that was the case she never would have even sat her Leaving Cert. It’s not all kids talk though, sure who wants that? It’s mostly boldness and slagging herself. If you enjoy jokes about sex, drinking, family and mowing down cyclists, then this is the show for you.

Our puppet protagonist is an unattractive thief out to rob from the comely to give to the homely. The setting is Très Riches Heures, a book of hours and calendar which illustrates and follows that homely thief Time as he scampers through each month. In a new play written by Isadora Epstein and created by the makers of the awardwinning Flemish Proverbs (Fringe 2015), Moira Brady Averill, Isadora Epstein, and Kristina Yee prepare for a performance that summons together the powers of gods, men, puppets, and the hurdygurdy. Join us as we pay a visit to the 1400s to stop Time, before it’s too late.

But there comes a time when you have to change for the better; declutter, shred, read half a self-help book without rolling your eyes. A stand-up show that will spark joy when touched.

Accompanied by only the pitch drop experiment, Marie delves deeper into her seclusion as she waits year after year for the fall of her dark companion. The pitch preoccupies her every waking hour, possessing her mind and calling into question the unsettling subjectivity of time through moments of psychosis where the very core of her reality is brought into question. Set in a dilapidated Victorian building in the heart of Dublin’s Creative Quarter, this new aerial theatre performance explores a young woman’s psyche. Her story is taken to the air by one of Ireland’s leading aerial silks artists, Ria Murphy.

It explores flawed and flawless heroes, a world mapped by international trade and the optimistic impossibility that tonight we will change the world. But is there anything we can all agree on?

EUROPOLY

EUROPOLY is a project in which artists document the new rules of the game since the financial crisis rattled Europe. Through films and performances, they tell the stories of how the European financial crisis has stamped our everyday lives. Committed, always subjective and very specific, it is about seeking: in supermarket checkouts, in Irish villages and Portuguese clubs. EUROPOLY looks forward. And invites everyone to butt in.

In 2016, Tiger Dublin Fringe participates in EUROPOLY with two exhilarating shows – This Beach (page 32) and Monday: Watch Out for the Right! (page 30) – as well as a series of seven short films exploring a transforming Europe. EUROPOLY is a project of the Goethe-Instituts in Europe in cooperation with the Münchner Kammerspiele, Onassis Cultural Centre (Athens), Sirenos – Vilnius International Theatre Festival, Teatro Maria Matos (Lisbon) and Tiger Dublin Fringe.

BLEED Bottlenote

BLEED animates an abandoned Georgian house, creating a reverberating, pulsing space. The audience is led from room to room each occupied by a musician, guided by light design which highlights the patina and atmosphere of the house. A live collaborative tape piece is used, a technique of recording each performance and replaying that recording throughout the house as the next performance is occurring. With ten performances this creates an increasingly rich, layered ambiance where past decisions inform subsequent ones, with each musician adding to the composition over five days turning the entire four storey house into a huge instrument.

TIGER DUBLIN FRINGE AWARDS 2016 Fringe Awards recognise, reward and celebrate the hard work and talent on display in the festival each year. Annually hundreds of artists bring their intelligence, heart, vision and drive to projects at the festival. They inspire us. The Awards honour and acknowledge some of the stand-outs in this year’s festival. Best Production Award Presented to the show, production or event that has it all, displaying excellence in every area of production, design, performance, concept and execution. This award acknowledges the enormous work and talent that is poured into presenting work at the festival and honours the comprehensive production. 2015’s winner was Agrippina by Handel presented by Irish Youth Opera in a coproduction with Northern Ireland Opera in association with the Irish Chamber Orchestra and the Lime Tree Theatre. Best Design Award Presented for outstanding lighting, sound, scenic, projection, costume or overall design. The 2015 winner was Moira Brady Averill and Isadora Epstein for Flemish Proverbs. Best Performers Award Two of the festival’s best performers will take home this much soughtafter accolade from a field of up to ten nominees. 2015’s winners were Ben Sullivan in It Folds (Brokentalkers/ junk ensemble) and Liadain Herriott in Liminal. Best Ensemble Award Introduced in 2014, this award recognises the ensemble as the standout – the key and driving action behind a project or show. 2015’s winner was Behind the Dark by Loosysmokes.

Judge’s Choice Award Instituted in 2014, the Judges’ Choice award recognises a project, contributor, experience or Fringe event that defies categorisation and is simply too good to pass by unheralded. The 2015 winner was Object Piggy by Dying Breeds. Fishamble New Writing Award Honouring the best play by a new or emerging Irish (or Ireland-based) playwright premiered during Tiger Dublin Fringe, this award includes dramaturgical support as appropriate, for instance, a scholarship place on one of Fishamble’s acclaimed playwriting courses and/or support through the New Play Clinic for the playwright’s next play, generously supported by Fishamble: The New Play Company.
