As we reach the halfway mark of Tiger Dublin Fringe 2016, we’re looking ahead to a jam-packed second week and rounding up some of our favourite moments of the festival so far. There have been so many incredible moments, so here are five of the best!
1. The show must go on
When we said ‘break a leg’, we didn’t mean it literally, but alas, a broken appendage couldn’t stop the Queen of Ireland, Panti Bliss, from brewing up a storm (you’ll appreciate this reference when you see the show!) in #RIOTDublin! Alongside an all-star cast, Panti proved herself to be the ultimate doyenne of the stage as she soldiered through the pain to dazzle and delight the audience.
2. Penny Arcade soaking up the Dublin culture
We love Penny Arcade here in Fringe HQ and her show Longing Lasts Longer proved a massive hit with audience members in the Peacock. We’ve been Insta-stalking Penny since she arrived, watching her timeline as she explored the city, hanging out with the one and only Panti Bliss and partying the night away with Mr Pussy!
3. Hot Brown Honey taking over the Spiegeltent
Night after night, Hot Brown Honey left audience members transfixed, astounded and empowered with their phenomenal and urgent performances. Believe the hive, #RaiseTheRoof and fight the power! Can we be best friends?
4. Oona Doherty’s arrival to Project Arts Centre
Oona Doherty’s Hope Hunt saw the audience ushered outside Project Arts Centre to witness the artist arrive in a car outside the venue. Doherty immediately had the audience in the palm of her hand as she proceeded to begin her performance on the street before ordering everyone back into the theatre to present her enthralling distillation of the male.
5. Lords of Strut and Up & Over It take multi-tasking to a whole new level
Lords of Strut and Up & Over It are currently dazzling audiences as part of an all-star stellar cast in RIOT and they’re doing it all in the midst of rehearsals for their very own Fringe shows! Lords of Strut bring Late Night TV Talk Show to Project Arts Centre from Sep 20 – 24, while Up & Over It’s Into the Water runs at Smock Alley from Sep 17 – 24.
