Dates: 01 Jan - 08 Sep

Tickets: €13

Dublin’s most surprising festival, Dublin Fringe Festival is back – and this year Project Arts Centre and Absolut Fringe are collaborating on four very special performances, and here they are……

A USEFUL PLAY | GERARDO NAUMANN| 4 – 8 SEPT2009, 8.30PM & 9 SEPT 2009, 6.30PM | SSPACE UPSTAIRS| €16/ €14/ €12

A play about a film yet to be made. Director and filmmaker Naumann is going to make a film based on a woman’s diary he found on the street. Using a local cast of twenty extras to bring his vision to fruition, the stage becomes a platform to test out his new film concept tentatively titled Uruguay. Don’t miss this world premiere, your chance to watch cinema being created in a theatre.

POINT BLANK | EDIT KALDOR | 6.00PM, 5 – 8 SEPT 2009 | SPACE UPSTAIRS | €16/ €14

19-year old Nada offers a glimpse of her private obsession – people watching. It’s a curious thrill to see her titillatingly candid photograph collection – she’s taken a whopping 240,000 pictures so far, everything from lovers smooching on a balcony to an angry man kicking a post box. A fascinating and absorbing form of voyeurism, and an insight into both Nada and the people she follows.

HOLIDAY | RANTERS THEATRE | 6.15PM, 5 – 9 SEPT 2009 | CUBE | €16/ €14

In a moment of relaxation and quite reflection two men unwittingly engage. Spontaneous, unaffected and thrillingly real, discussion becomes an exploration of private fantasy, hidden anxiety, personal mythology, and inexplicable behaviour. From the bar to the chaise lounge, Holiday is the journey of man’s simple complexities, set within a sparingly elegant design, complimented a contemporary baroque musical score. (Contains some bad language)

LAVENDER | JOUISSANCE PRODUCTIONS | 7PM & 9PM, 14 – 19 SEPT 2009 | CUBE | €15/ €12/€10

Let Lavender consume you, still your noisy mind and lull you back before birth, before language, to a silent space where a girl lays sleeping, waiting, in the gap between memory and premonition, between birth and death, enveloped by lavender’s languid hold. She struggles to fix herself amidst its elusive power. A power that you yourself may not withstand…

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
