Dublin Fringe Festival is Ireland’s largest multi-disciplinary arts festival and has been running since 1995. For 16 days every September the festival transforms Dublin into a ‘dream factory’, an exposé of great creative talent from around the globe. The festival stages around 600 events in over 40 venues throughout the city, and up to 150,000 people have at least one Fringe experience during the Festival. For audiences it is a platform for the best new, emerging Irish arts companies and a showcase for the best contemporary theatre and dance shows touring internationally. For artists, the Fringe facilitates an opportunity to innovate, to cross disciplines and boundaries and to find new ways and places to create work.
Dublin Fringe, unlike many Fringes internationally, is a wholly curated festival seeking innovative and daring work that impacts, moves and invigorates its audience.
