Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival at the Beckett

Tend/Liminal (Double Bill)

Date:

Sunday 6 to Thursday 10 September 2015 at 20.30 (Preview Sunday 6 Sept)

Details:

Tend - Emma Fitzgerald and Antje O’Toole

Tend celebrates our need for joy, kindness, belonging and freedom from fear. With film, singing and dance that springs from their homes and hearts, Emma Fitzgerald and Antje O’Toole look at their own lives and ask themselves big questions about sexual identity, love, Irish culture and motherhood. Although their stories of fostering orphaned kittens and teaching contemporary dance to four year olds are personal, the themes of intimacy, trust and sacrifice are global. Moments of Tend are inspired by the 2000 film adaptation of Paul Johnson’s provocative work Without Hope or Fear.

Developed with support from Dance Ireland.

Liminal - Liadain Herriott

Everybody has a story. This one belongs to a classical lass living in a modern world. A girl, like any other, with feelings, trying to find her way - in, out and through the darkness. On the threshold, trying to find the balance between one state and another, she chases the light. Charged with emotion, how does she adapt to the place she finds herself in? Where does classicism meet minimalism? Her quest, in and of itself, creates a liminal universe where fragments make sense and sense is fragmented. Classical lassical, liminal minimal, a journey through rhythm and rhyme using movement - a kaleidoscope of parallel worlds where classical influences in movement and music
morph with minimal electronic beats.
Developed with support from the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, Dance Theatre of Ireland, Firkin Crane (Cork) and Mermaid Arts Centre (Wicklow).

Embody the Void

Date:

Monday 7 to Thursday 10 September 2015 at 18.30 (Preview Monday 7 Sept)

Company:

Alba Lorca

Details:

“The labyrinth of my steps has led me exactly to this point. Each impression of each toe, each mark of every heel. A trail in the sand made through time bringing me exactly to this place.”
Obliged by their very existence to move, inhabit and learn from their bodies, two creatures embark on a journey through the contradictions of the human condition. At once philosophical and playful, choreographer and performer Alba Lorca combines dance and voice to lead us down a path where mistakes are progress, chaos is constructive and vulnerability is the greatest asset. Created by Alba Lorca and performed in collaboration with playwright Cristina Nunez.

… seems to transcend the limits of theatre, even of our imagination.

(Not) Belonging

Date:

Saturday 12 to Monday 14 September 2015 at 17.00 and 20.30 (Preview Saturday 12 Sept at 17.00)

Company:

This is Happening

Details:

Have you ever felt like you belonged? Have you ever wanted to? Did you ever sneak out in clothes your mother would never have approved of, or skip lunch for a month to go to a gig? For most people, Seapunk is just an internet joke. But for Matthew O’Dwyer and for countless others, it meant something. Through interviews, film, music, poetry and visual art from a diverse range of people and media, we’re exploring the phenomenon of subculture. We want to work out what it feels like to belong. Do you?

Matthew O’Dwyer is a ferociously talented and precocious young man.
Golden Plec

Developed with the support of RUA RED.
