Dates: 8-13 September 2012
ABSOLUT Fringe is Ireland’s largest multi-disciplinary arts festival. Now in its 18th year, the festival stages up to 525 events in over 40 venues, and around 150,000 people have at least one Fringe experience during the Festival. For 16 days the festival transforms Dublin into a ‘dream factory’, an exposé of great creative talent from around the globe. 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.
ABSOLUT Fringe, unlike many Fringes internationally, is a wholly curated festival seeking innovative and daring work that impacts, moves and invigorates its audience. Isaacs hostel and Jacobs Inn are close to all central Dublin venues.
