Fringe is 21 and we’re giving you all the birthday presents. First off, we’re bringing back a long-lost favourite friend of the festival, the legendary Spiegeltent! Right in the heart of the city at Wolfe Tone Square, the Spiegeltent is the place to catch the dazzling, the wonderful and the daring. fringefest.com | 1850 374 643


here’s your chance to first hear from the likes of Alice Malseed, Áine Ryan, Sligo’s Tintoretto Sect, The Lir Academy grads Eccles Theatre Group and many more.

Our headliners have all that in spades; the astounding and charming Company 2 with their acrobatic circus extravaganza, Scotch & Soda. Soaring over your head, pulling off shocking stunts, these daredevils and their live band accompaniment will thrill you. It’s a total winner.

Dance is one of Ireland’s most astounding art forms – get on the bandwagon. Newcomer Alba Lorca and Fringe favourite performers Justine Cooper, Luke Murphy, Liadain Herriott, Antje O’Toole and Emma Fitzgerald reveal new works built on story, disruption and joy. Croí Glan and ponydance join forces for a perception-challenging romp while John Scott and Irish Modern Dance Theatre burst forth with a new choreographic sensation.

Are you ready to rumble? Dublin’s own Over the Top Wrestling is, in what’s set to be the head-knocking hit of the festival. Skilled performers, hilarious laughs, this one’s going to be a powerhouse of a tilt. The old world charm of the Spiegeltent will be abuzz with great choons. Al Porter and the Swing Cats mix music and comedy and Booka Brass Band will have Wolfe Tone Square bursting at its seams, while Sounds Alive offers intelligent and quirky live radio stories and song.

Tying it all together is where theatre, dance and performance meet. Brokentalkers and junk ensemble, in a long-awaited co-created collaboration, put non-performers on stage in surreal acting and movement styles while the unclassifiable Ruairí Donovan and Asaf Aharonson involve us in a powerful meditation on decency, eroticism and intimacy. Object Piggy from aerialist Emily Aoibheann will explode our senses in a genre-breaking fusion of live sculpture, laser play and circus.

Cabaret legends will ignite our nights. Mx Justin Vivian Bond gives us wit and soaring song under the musical direction of Thomas Bartlett. Bourgeois & Maurice and David Hoyle offer a mundanity-inspired ripper of a music and comedy night with Middle of the Road. There will be more, keep your eyes peeled for special treats announced throughout the lead-up to the festival. It wouldn’t be a birthday without some surprises.

Comedy fans will split their sides as David O’Doherty, Alison Spittle, Katie O’Brien, Abie Philbin Bowman and Conor O’Toole offer great laughs. Martin McSharry theatricalises a comedian having his worst day. Kim Noble is set to redefine theatre, comedy and 5 everything in one of the most profound performances out of the UK in the past decade. You’re Not Alone will push the envelope, push your buttons and get you right in the gut.

Now about that unconventional birthday party of ours. We invited a group of 21 year olds to celebrate their 21st birthday and the 21st birthday of Fringe. We handed them the keys to the festival, saying ‘Make! Create!’ They’ve surveyed 21-year old Dubliners and are transforming those results into an installation/ squat/laboratory/utopia. They’re also flipping the project on its head, refusing to be obedient subjects in an art experiment and asking why Fringe made the invitation in the first place. It will be bold, unusual and cheeky. Come visit, meet, play and feed.

Music lovers: prepare to hit the streets to enjoy great gigs in unique venues across Dublin. Bottlenote weave their spell in 13 North Great Georges Street, Young Hearts Run Free take over the Freemasons’ Hall for one night only, while newcomer Seán Kennedy will wow you in historic Smock Alley. Keep an eye out for Famous Seamus and Sean-tastic, the livewire Lords of Strut who are hosting the sweatiest 30 minute Contain-A-Rave in the heart of the city. Afterwards, pop along with the opera fans revelling in Handel’s Agrippina, presented by Irish Youth Opera with Northern Ireland Opera.

Fringe is the festival where artists reimagine the city, giving us new memories of performances that resonate whenever we pass. Spirit of the Fringe winner Louise White creates an epic environment imagining a community emblematic of our times in Mother You. Company SJ returns to Fringe with some of Ireland’s performing arts legends with Beckett in the City: The Women Speak. Loosysmokes presents late-night acrobatics swooshing through the trees of Phoenix Park under the cover of darkness. True-blue theatre fans will find performances to delight, harrow and inspire. Selina Cartmell brings us an all new production of GROUNDED by George Brant. MIRARI, Breach & Quinn, and the ever popular Show in a Bag series give shining examples of new writing and new performance. Stefanie Preissner assembles the lousiest Ard Fheis ever in a searing exposé on failure. Fringe is also where to discover new voices,

It’s a rip-roaring festival full of sensational ideas, wild bodies, fierce minds and taboo-busting jokes. We are experimental. We are the avant garde. Fringe isn’t just something for arty types with designer glasses; adventurous performance is for everyone. These artists are at the height of cultural expression and we’re bringing you their very best. Lose yourself in fourteen days of Fringe and see you at the festival!

— Kris Nelson

Twenty First Presented by FRINGE LAB RATS Dublin An experiment. What happens when a group of people who don’t usually get a shot, get a shot? What happens when they are given free reign of a chunk of Tiger Dublin Fringe? What happens when a curated festival doesn’t curate? What happens when twenty-one year olds construct and design their utopia? What happens when they live in it? Will it represent twenty-one year old Dublin, or just the twenty-one year olds who showed up? Tiger Dublin Fringe invited a group of twentyone year olds to create some sort of birthday celebration for themselves and the festival. For seven days, a group of self-selecting twentyone year olds will respond to this invitation. They will live together in a human sized lab rat cage of their own design. It will be a little corner of the universe that’s more playful, more interpersonal and less internet-ed than the rest. This is their utopia. This is their experiment. They are the subject. Come and see and play. Witness, study or take part in this experiment.

GROUNDED by George Brant Siren Productions Dublin 28

The multi-award winning Siren Productions returns to Tiger Dublin Fringe with the Irish premiere of the global phenomenon GROUNDED by George Brant.

It’s the speed It’s the G-Force pressing you back as you tear the sky It’s the ride She’s a hot-rod F16 fighter pilot. She’s pregnant. She’s grounded. Her career in the sky is over. Now she flies remote-controlled drones over the Middle East. She struggles through surreal twelve-hour shifts far from the battlefield, hunting terrorists by day and returning to her family at night. As the pressure mounts, the boundaries begin to blur. Clare Dunne stars in this grippingly compulsive play directed by Selina Cartmell.

“A searing piece of writing.” The Guardian GROUNDED is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. Supported by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.

GHOSTS Ruairí Donovan / Asaf Aharonson Cork / Berlin 31

“Mmm, ok?” “So?” “It’s about the bear.” “Which bear? The big bear? The star constellation? The homosexual archetype?” “No the bear that is waiting.” From the confidential to the indecent, travelling from the erotic to the pornographic and back again to friendship. Veiling and unveiling the potential of a complex intimacy between two lovers, between a monkey and a naked boy. Drawing on the work of theorist Michael Hardt, GHOSTS tries to understand “how love can be the central, constitutive mode and motor of politics.” Winner of the Judges’ Choice Award for ZOMBIES why death is dying or are you working hard enough? in Tiger Dublin Fringe 2014.

Romances The Late David Turpin Dublin

Love hurts and heals, transforms and destroys. From the deepest part of us, love sings. Pop auteur David Turpin, joined by an eclectic cast, presents his first new body of work since 2013’s acclaimed We Belong Dead album.

Jellyfish Alice Malseed & Sarah Baxter Belfast / Dublin

Growing up, Alice was promised the world. What happened? This one-woman show will rollercoaster you through ten years of her life from Belfast to London. Fuelled by the rawness of the city, it’s about mind-numbing minimum wage jobs, late nights, early mornings and having a really great time. It’s about questioning everything and the whole world shattering around us. An intimate explosion of confessional new writing about what it means to be from Generation Y. With music, movement and a contemporary performance style, Alice will guide you on a journey through this effervescent chaos. It’s savage.

Drawing Crosses on a Dusty Windowpane Dylan Coburn Gray Dublin

“60 degrees north. 100 degrees east. In the psychic black, I know you from before I’m sure, I’m sure, I’m sure, I’m sure...” A cinematic, movement-theatre piece inspired by black holes, flick books and multiplicities of the self. Drawn by light and coloured by sound through the window of the body - a feeling of moving whilst standing still.

I am going to stand up and talk to you about loss. It’s sort of a play, sort of a spoken word poem, but definitely made out of memories and questions. Things like: Were you happy? Were you lonely? If you were young today, rather than then, would you be more happy and less lonely? Would you feel safer telling people who and what you are? When someone’s gone, you can’t know these things. But you can ask yourself, and you do ask yourself… Performed by Claire Galvin.

Memories and tensions are bubbling to the surface but Jack has an escape plan. Sort of. From the company behind hit show In Dog Years I’m Dead (Stewart Parker Trust Award 2014), this new play examines what three couples risk when striving for happiness as they clash over pasts, presents and futures. Developed in association with the Abbey Theatre and Old Vic New Voices (London).

score Breach & Quinn

A shamefully neglected piece of Irish cinema, The Score was panned on its initial release and Breach & Quinn, devastated by the response, never made another film. The movie sees Quinn, a desperate man in a situation he can’t control. There’s a woman, a fat man with alarmingly high-waisted trousers and it certainly appears that there will be violence. Over time The Score became a cult hit. As a result of this resurgent interest Breach & Quinn agreed to come out of retirement and perform the film live onstage - complete with its “sprawling, hallucinatory and probably unplayable soundtrack.” (Unplayable? We’ll see about that). Sit back. Open your eyes. Dream.

Breda’s Way The Word of Breda Cork / Ballinasloe

Breda is on pilgrimage through the towns of Ireland with only the Virgin Mary for company. It is 30 years since the moving statues and Breda wants to reinvent Mary as a feminist icon. Exploring gender, faith and rural life through interactions with members of each community, Breda rediscovers Irish oddities for us to laugh and treasure. She has notions of enlightenment but life on the road makes it hard to live up to her namesake Brigid. Live action, video and song will bring you on a journey of shifting perspectives of people and place. Hitch a ride with the gently abusive Breda, the comedic farmer from Ballinasloe.

Overshadowed Sunday’s Child Dublin / London

Imogene used to be sparkly, vivacious and outgoing. She used to fancy lads, have curves and love chips. Recently however she has become withdrawn, gaunt, obsessed with exercise. The reason? Caol, her new “best friend”, who’s cast a dark shadow over Imogene’s life. Invisible to everyone except Imogene, Caol will not rest until Imogene has been reduced both emotionally and physically to a shadow of her former self. Through puppetry and physicality this piece aims to provoke compassion and debate around the subject of eating disorders. Winner of the 2014 First Fortnight Award for My Name is Saoirse.

Feeling love is what keeps us going. It’s nourishment for our souls like food in the belly! Am I right?! And as my Granddad often said “an empty sack won’t stand.” When I sing, I leave this world. It feels like crying but it’s different. It’s like floating away but it’s rooted somewhere. And when I’m pulled back down, I’m torn from that other place and thrown into smashed cups and fists. Through the eyes of a child, with the voice of a man, classical tenor Seán Kennedy explores domestic violence, abandonment and love.

Embody the Void Alba Lorca Dublin

“…seems to transcend the limits of theatre, even of our imagination.” Dance Europa Magazine

“The labyrinth of my steps has led me exactly to this point. Each impression of each toe, each mark of every heel. A trail in the sand made through time bringing me exactly to this place.” Obliged by their very existence to move, inhabit and learn from their bodies, two creatures embark on a journey through the contradictions of the human condition. At once philosophical and playful, choreographer and performer Alba Lorca combines dance and voice to lead us down a path where mistakes are progress, chaos is constructive and vulnerability is the greatest asset. Created by Alba Lorca and performed in collaboration with playwright Cristina Nuñez. Developed with support from Schokoladenfabrik, Hoftheater and Grupo Oito (Berlin), Dance Ireland, RUA RED and FRINGE LAB with the support of Tiger Dublin Fringe. This show contains nudity. @tigerdubfringe | #tigerdubfringe | facebook.com/dublinfringefestival

Tend Emma Fitzgerald and Antje O’Toole Wicklow

Tend celebrates our need for joy, kindness, belonging and freedom from fear. With film, singing and dance that springs from their homes and hearts, Emma Fitzgerald and Antje O’Toole look at their own lives and ask themselves big questions about sexual identity, love, Irish culture and motherhood. Although their stories of fostering orphaned kittens and teaching contemporary dance to four year olds are personal, the themes of intimacy, trust and sacrifice are global. Moments of Tend are inspired by the 2000 film adaptation of Paul Johnson’s provocative work Without Hope or Fear. Developed with support from Dance Ireland.

Liminal Liadain Herriott

Double Bill

Dun Laoghaire

Everybody has a story. This one belongs to a classical lass living in a modern world. A girl, like any other, with feelings, trying to find her way - in, out and through the darkness. On the threshold, trying to find the balance between one state and another, she chases the light. Charged with emotion, how does she adapt to the place she finds herself in? Where does classicism meet minimalism? Her quest, in and of itself, creates a liminal universe where fragments make sense and sense is fragmented. Classical lassical, liminal minimal, a journey through rhythm and rhyme using movement - a kaleidoscope of parallel worlds where classical influences in movement and music morph with minimal electronic beats.

Developed with support from the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Dance Theatre of Ireland, Firkin Crane (Cork) and Mermaid Arts Centre (Wicklow).

(Not) Belonging This is Happening

Have you ever felt like you belonged? Have you ever wanted to? Did you ever sneak out in clothes your mother would never have approved of, or skip lunch for a month to go to a gig? For most people, Seapunk is just an internet joke. But for Matthew O’Dwyer and for countless others, it meant something. Through interviews, film, music, poetry and visual art from a diverse range of people and media, we’re exploring the phenomenon of subculture. We want to work out what it feels like to belong. Do you?

Your Own Man / Mad Notions Luke Murphy Cork / New York

Developed through a creative residency at Dance Limerick. Premiered with the support of a programming grant from The Limetree Theatre (Limerick).

Nobody seems to know what a langer is, everyone’s disappointed I was never in Riverdance and I’m not sure why people keep telling me to have a great day... Fusing storytelling, rich imagery and dynamic movement Murphy scales down and examines his opinions, insecurities, ambitions and the tricky nature of keeping a long term relationship with your cultural identity. Both fragile and blunt, this multi-disciplinary work examines the satisfaction of following your own path and the fear of losing that small thread in the labyrinth that will lead you home. Following sold out performances in Limerick, Cork and New York City, this work promises to take the audience on a journey both unexpected and warmly familiar.

Dropping their costumes in the dressing room, two of Ireland’s leading actors abandon their matinee of Yeats’ Cathleen Ní Houlihan. Instead they take their revolvers and march to Dublin Castle. Inciting each other all the way, they fire the first shots of the rebellion changing the course of Irish history.

The Matador Shane O’Reilly

Dublin

Dublin

“This is s-s-serious son! D’ye hear me?” My father is a pro at the height of his powers. And I am about to break his heart. This is the Theatre Royal in Dublin in 1961. The year before the theatre closed. The theatre that kept Dubliners sane. Bob Hope called it “the magnificent garage”. Judy Garland sang from her dressing room window to the people in Poolbeg Street. Danny Kaye made people miss their last buses so taxi drivers wrote to him and begged him to come back. But I am becoming a man and my father’s powers will fail, and the Vaudeville will become a realm of ghosts. Broken hearts are one thing. But can you heal broken men? Featuring Craig Connolly.

A picture hangs in the hall of a tiny cottage on the side of a mountain. A matador waving red at a beast. In the kitchen is a grandmother. There, also, is her grandson. Outside the cottage, tied by his nose ring to a peg in the soil, is a bull. His fate lies in the balance. Best performer nominee (Dublin Fringe 2011) Shane O’Reilly (Follow, Farm) presents this awkward Irish story, a messy fight between man and beast.

Dark Loosysmokes Dublin 83

A visual and aerial acrobatic spectacle emerges in the dark woods at night. Exploring the instability of a mind and its wanderings, it’s an allegory for the darkness within, a passage through shifting identities and ever rearranging environments. Instinctual in character, form is pushed to tethered limits. A profound physical display of modern circus accompanied by an original score. The piece moves from the negative, to the surreal, to the ecstatic, finding raw moments of visual impact and catching those of catalytic boom. This show is funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon. Developed with support from Office of Public Works. This is an oudoor performance in a wooded area. Please dress appropriately.

Flemish Proverbs Moira Brady Averill and Isadora Epstein

Set during the late 16th century, at the beginning of the Dutch Golden Age, two prison cooks attempt to make you a bowl of pottage. They will do their very best, but sometimes, as the old Flemish Proverb goes, “He who has spilled the pottage cannot scrape it all up again.” In the cavernous arches of Luncheonette, an almost edible fiasco will be staged. The toots of the Krumhorn will accompany your considerations of regret and humiliation - a reminder that there is no such thing as a free lunch.

Over the years it has evolved to also provide the participants with an opportunity to meet and engage with international organisations and presenters. The objective is for companies and artists to investigate the possibility of remounting their shows following Tiger Dublin Fringe or, indeed, to develop new relationships for their work in the future. Registration opens on July 29 at irishtheatreinstitute.ie. For more information contact Ewa Senger, Programme Coordinator at esenger@irishtheatreinstitute.ie.

“Having the chance to network with all these people in the open minded environment made our life so much easier, and it was also a very good training in how to pitch your project very precisely within a limited time frame.” Toolbox Participant 2014 96

Information Toolbox is funded by the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Dublin City Council and Culture Ireland.

EUROPOLY

In 2016, Tiger Dublin Fringe will participate in EUROPOLY; a platform of performances and films exploring Europe in times of transformation. Artists from Europe – theatre-makers, film directors, writers, actors, musicians, entertainers, activists – document Europe’s economic crisis as a game we’ve all been forced to play. Committed, always subjective and very specific, it is about seeking: in supermarket checkouts, on the music and television industries’ backstages, in Irish villages and Portuguese clubs. EUROPOLY tells the stories of how the European financial crisis has stamped our everyday lives. EUROPOLY looks forward. And invites everyone to butt in. Follow on fringefest.com. EUROPOLY is a project of the Goethe-Institutes 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. Idea, project development and management: Goethe-Institut in Lithuania.

Tiger Dublin Fringe Awards 2015 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 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 artistry that is poured into presenting work at the festival and honours the comprehensive production. 2014’s winner was How To Keep An Alien by Sonya Kelly / Rough Magic. The Best Design Award The Best Design award is presented for outstanding lighting, sound, scenic, projection, costume or overall design. The 2014 winner was Tardigrade by Philip Connaughton for overall design. Best Performers Two of the festival’s best performers will take home this much soughtafter accolade from a field of up to ten nominees. 2014’s winners were Emmet Kirwan and Ian Lloyd Anderson (Dublin Oldschool) and Lauren Larkin (Advocacy). Best Ensemble Introduced in 2014, this award recognises the ensemble as the standout – the key and driving action behind a project or show. 2014 winners were Talking Shop Ensemble and Shaun Dunne for Advocacy. Judge’s Choice Award Instituted in 2014, the Judge’s Choice Award recognises a project, contributor, experience or Fringe event that defies categorisation and is simply too good to pass by unheralded. The inaugural winner was ZOMBIES why death is dying or are you working hard enough? by Ruairí Donovan. 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. The idea of new writing is interpreted broadly to include new works in the area of dance, performance art, music, multi-author, post-dramatic works and so on. The 2014 recipient of this coveted award was Fiona McGeown and Thomas Conway for Between Trees and Water.fishamble.com. First Fortnight Award Since its inception in 2009, First Fortnight’s key aim has been to challenge stigma and prejudice about mental health issues through the creative arts. This award recognises excellence in a Fringe show that does just that, inviting it back for an encore run at First Fortnight Mental Health Arts Festival in 2016. 2014’s recipient was Sunday’s Child Theatre Company for My Name is Saoirse. For further information on First Fortnight visit firstfortnight.ie. Next Stage Wild Card Fringe awards a bursary to an artist who has been part of the festival, enabling them to participate in the Next Stage – an artist development programme run by Dublin Theatre Festival in partnership with Theatre Forum. Robbie Blake won in 2014. dublintheatrefestival.com theatreforum.ie. Bewley’s Café Theatre Little Gem Award Bewley’s Café Theatre is Ireland’s foremost presenter of lunchtime theatre and is delighted and proud to continue to sponsor the Bewley’s Café Theatre ‘Little Gem’ Award for the most exciting show presented at this year’s festival under 60 minutes. The selection is made by the jury for final approval by Bewley’s Café Theatre. The prize is a handsome one; the winning

production earns a two-week run at Bewley’s Café Theatre with €2,000 available to the company for remounting the production. Noni Stapleton won with Charolais in 2014. bewleyscafetheatre.com. Moscow Irish Fringe Festival Award An Rúis, seo chugat anois muid! New award!

The award winners will be part of the biggest Irish arts festivals in Eastern Europe with over 100 events showcasing Irish music, comedy, theatre and film. Be part of next year’s green invasion of Russia by bringing your work to Europe’s biggest and craziest city! Удачи! irishweek.ru. 97 Spirit of the Fringe / Spirit of Project Award Co-presented by Tiger Dublin Fringe and Project Arts Centre, this award is given to an Irish artist who embodies the Spirit of the Fringe and Project Arts Centre, demonstrating a dedication to making bold, exciting and relevant contemporary work. The winning artist will get to remount their Fringe 2015 work at Project Arts Centre, and receive €5,000 for the commissioning of a new work for the 2016 festival, along with in-house consultation, mentorship and curatorial support from both organisations. This prize is a game changer and connection builder; preference will be given to an artist on their first outing with Fringe or who’s not been presented in Project or both. The jury nominates with a final selection from Project’s Artistic Director Cian O’Brien and Fringe Director Kris Nelson. projectartscentre.ie.

Tiger Dublin Fringe is dedicated to advancing, strengthening and supporting the independent arts sector. 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. At a basic level, professional performing artists need somewhere to work; Fringe provides that essential space by giving to subsidising access to two large studios, an office for artists and a writer’s room (the CELL). Artists also access Fringe’s own in-house expertise across a wide range of disciplines such as producing, marketing and publicity, with an ongoing schedule of workshops, masterclasses with Irish and international experts, networking events, scratch nights and a host of other activities devoted to cultivating connections and expertise. To find out more about FRINGE LAB please visit fringefest.com/lab or contact hello@fringefest.com. FRINGE LAB is part funded by the Arts Council’s Theatre Resource Sharing Initiative and Dublin City Council’s Arts Office.

Tiger Dublin Fringe : New Perspectives

Tiger Dublin Fringe is home to bold ideas, brave performing arts and adventurous audiences. Fringe focuses on fresh and innovative approaches to the arts from Irish and international makers. This ethos is at the very heart of Fringe and we aim to apply it to everything we do.

This year we worked with two of Ireland’s brightest new photographers to create the image and look for the festival as well as our much-loved Show in a Bag strand of new works. We’re lucky to have the work of Cáit Fahey (festival campaign) and Clíona Ní Laoi (Show in a Bag) grace our brochure pages. The 2015 central campaign was devised and photographed by Cáit, with Scott Burnett of Studio Aad for art direction, Clíona assisting, and styling provided by Saileóg O’Halloran. The brief we developed with Scott and Cáit was to have festival artists as our guides to the mysterious, the joyful and the surreal. Using mirrors to create portals and make-you-looktwice images, Cáit’s photos capture magical micro-performances as the artists play with our perspective. With thanks to our artist models Raymond Keane (Remember to Breathe), Louise White (Mother You), Seán Kennedy (boy), Matthew O’Dwyer ((Not) Belonging), and Megan Kennedy and Jessica Kennedy (It Folds). The imagery for this year’s Show in a Bag strand was photographed by Clíona, in collaboration 99 with the Show in a Bag artists. Clíona’s brief was to photograph four brand new shows against a simple background and transform the same starting off point into images that resonate with character and story. Catch these dynamic images across the festival, we’re thrilled with the results.

Cáit Fahey

Clíona Ní Laoi

Cáit Fahey is a photographer from Dublin. Since graduating from the photography BA in IADT (2012) her work has been exhibited in Dublin, Limerick, Cork, London and Berlin. For more information please visit caitfahey.com.

Clíona Ní Laoi is an interdisciplinary creative working across the fields of art and design. Specialising in lens based media, she makes conceptually driven works across print, photography, publication and film. Driven by experimentation, her work focuses on analogue solutions of graphic works. Her practice holds a poetic quality with a particular focus on a place where art, design and philosophy meet.
