What's on at Fringe?
A drag king punk gig about architecture and idealism! A dysto-utopian noise about The Man! A no-wave musical about how we ended up in this mess!
An acoustic set by Ireland’s favourite indie pop band set in the magical surroundings of the Spiegeltent. Every show is bona fide celebration with everything from balloons and confetti to unique crowd interaction on display.
At the end of the earth we experience what the Greelandic call “time of darkness”. A music theatre performance - score for voices, strings and percussion composed and directed by Jane Deasy with text by Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath and Dick Walsh.
Sep 14 - 17
Limerick’s hottest musical trio think globally and act locally. With hip hop at its core, razor sharp rap and spoken word collide with explosive beats in an electrifying live show. With support from Shookrah, whose mix of modern soul, hip hop and edgy pop make them stand out from the crowd.
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.
RuPaul's Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon and her cabaret co-star Major Scales star in bawdy, rowdy, raucous musical comedy The Vaudevillians. 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.
Sep 19 - 20
Ground-breaking duo Grandbrothers create new and previously undiscovered sounds, melding classical composition with modern, experimental production, sound design and elements of techno and club music.
BLEED animates an abandoned Georgian house, creating a reverberating, pulsing space and an increasingly rich, layered ambiance where past decisions inform subsequent ones. Every room is occupied by a musician, each one adding to the composition and turning the entire four storey house into a huge instrument.
Sep 21 - 25
Shit Robot & Forrests create a night of cutting edge electronica and non-stop party vibes to celebrate the incredible breadth of musical diversity on these shores.
This show is not about how the bubble burst. It’s about what we felt after we heard the crash. Through music, visuals and dance a cast of seven performers bring to the harsh light of day what our bodies knew that our mouths couldn’t quite say.
Balkan brass, gypsy tambourines, Spanish flamenco, Polish oberek in a crazy blend of rhythms: welcome to Fringe’s closing night party! Caravana Banda, Babu Król, DJs, acrobats, belly dancers and jugglers collide to create a madness that spreads like wild fire.
