Various venues in Co. Dublin
Dublin Fringe Festival is Ireland's largest multi-disciplinary arts festival running city-wide every September, showcasing the newest and best Irish and international arts. 2013 sees the 19th year of the festival and will involve up to 1000 participants with companies presenting over 600 events spanning theatre, dance, music, circus, opera, live and visual arts in over 30 venues across Dublin.
This event annually seeks to transform the city and celebrate it in an exposé of great creative talent from around the globe. This skilfully curated festival programme offers the opportunity to springboard all the human senses and entertain every kind of thrill seeker through work that is provoking, thoughtful, challenging and fun!
Dublin Fringe Festival, unlike others, is a wholly curated festival seeking innovative and daring work that impacts, moves and invigorates its audience. The festival is a platform for new companies as well as giving a platform for experimentation and risk for more established artists and a showcase for the best contemporary theatre, dance and spectacle shows touring internationally.
For the creators, the Fringe facilitates an opportunity to innovate, to cross disciplines and boundaries and to find new ways and places to make work, for audiences it is a chance to get up close with an array of talent for the best two weeks of performance of the year.
Dublin Fringe Festival has partnered with Volta, the Irish video on demand website, to create the Dublin Fringe Festival Film Collection. The selection of films, available now to stream or download from volta.ie, presenting stories of underdogs, whistle-blowers, trailblazers and dream-makers were chosen by the festival team in the lead up to the 19th annual Dublin Fringe Festival this September.
