The line-up for Dublin Fringe 2018 has been announced.
The event will take over the city for 16 days and nights this September introducing the hottest new talent across 23 venues - from a vintage bus travelling around the Phoenix Park to City Hall; from Stephen’s Green to outside the GPO; inside your earphones and on the heads of iconic Dublin statues.
Dublin Fringe Festival will stage 80 productions, 554 performances, with 55 world premieres. The programme has eight chapters including:
Parties, Club Nights & Gigs: Dublin after-dark demands your attention. Throbbing dancefloors and hot gigs to send you home starry-eyed. Fringe is championing Club Culture as an essential part of the cultural fabric of our city.
Inventors & Mavericks: Works that defy categorisation: live art, dance, theatre, music and genre-bending performance.
13 Good Plays: New writing from playwrights you need to know.
Punchlines: Uproarious stand-up, improv and musical comedy that will leave you begging for more.
Young Radicals: Five cool shows for those on the right side of adulthood as our Fringe for Young Audiences strand returns for a second time in association with Collapsing Horse.
Sharpened Senses: Tune in and reach out with intimate sound art, live art and visual art.
Bodies in Time: Feats of dance, circus, performance and physical theatre.
Dublin Fringe 2018 runs city-wide from September 8th - 23rd.
Highlights include The Money by Kaleider Productions, Craicling by Foil Arms & Hog, Sarah Gordon and Alice Malseed's new play BILLY, Madhouse by UnaMcKevitt and PJ Gallagher, Deirdre O’Kane’s A Line of O’Kane, the world premiere of Assisted Solo by Company Philip Connaughton and loads more.
Ruth McGowan, Dublin Fringe Festival’s new artistic director says;”This programme is pulsing with energy, adventure and joy. It’s a festival of firsts – each of the 80 events are brand new and happening in Dublin for the very first time at Fringe. We’re introducing the essential voices you need to hear from – I can’t wait for you to meet them.”
