Tiger Beer have been revealed as new title sponsor of one of the biggest annual events in the country - the Dublin Fringe Festival - and entertainment.ie are delighted to announce that we're the Festival's Online Media Partner. To paraphrase the great (ahem) Katy Perry, you're gonna hear us roar!
Taking place from September 5 – 20 with over 650 events in more than 40 venues across Dublin city, the multidisciplinary arts festival Tiger Dublin Fringe will feature music, theatre, live art, comedy, dance, circus, and visual art from Irish and international artists.The Festival turns 20 this year and it's celebrating in the most appropriate way - by presenting the most eclectic, dynamic and exciting programme yet.
With a new sponsor comes new endeavors and Tiger have been good enough to give us a sneak peek into what's in store. Dublin Made will showcase Dublin's most daring and edgy artists; The Company, Shaun Dunne and Talking Shop Ensemble, Foil, Arms and Hog, Philip Connaughton, DJ Kormac and Jape, who'll all let audiences see the capital city in a whole new light.
Spirit of the Fringe and Best Production winners The Company presents new show The Rest is Action which will take audiences back to the origins of performance with a re-imagining of Greek tragedy The Oresteia.
From the people who brought us Death of the Tradesmen, Talking Shop Ensemble and Shaun Dunne will stage a new work, inspired by Social Model of Disability, Advocacy, that will explore care in Ireland.
Jape and DJ Kormac will each perform unique live shows on separate nights in Meeting House Square, comedy trio Foil Arms and Hog will hit the Smock Alley Theatre with sure-to-be utterly hilarious new show Begorrah and Philip Connaughton presents Tardigrade, a cacophonic feast of dance.
Keep both ears and eyes out for full festival programme for 2014 to be announced very soon - and stay up to date with all things Tiger Dublin Fringe here at entertainment.ie.
