DDR X FRINGE:
This is not your national broadcaster
ddr. is Dublin Fringe Festival’s first ever virtual venue. Dublin Digital Radio is a unique space, where Ireland’s left-of-centre talent finds a home for music, discussion, experimentation and radical ideas.
ddr. and Fringe have been thinking about the digital and the physical:
What does it mean to create work that lives only online, that is non-downloadable
What does it mean to make work that comes from diverse spaces and voices?
What can we communicate across the airwaves that we cannot express in person?
We asked for artistic responses to these questions and we got a dynamic body of sonic works that are truly singular, engaged with urgent social and political conversations, and fizzing with ideas.
These three intimate radio encounters are appointment listening. Tune in to listen.dublindigitalradio.com during Fringe to hear these new pieces debut.
