not not at all just not at home

Dublin Fringe Festival is about to kick off all over the capital, and if you're struggling to choose a piece of culture to immerse yourself in, never fear. 

Here is s concise list of truly unmissible installations, comics and theatrics happening this September. 

Alison Spittle, Worrier Princess

If you are not already accustomed to the comedic stylings of Alison Spittle, then strap in my pals (also, where have you been?)

Spittle perfectly pairs relatable 'I'm thinking it but she said it' humour with personal insight, this show examines a variety of topics which worry the creative. 

Her third show with the Fringe is set to be her best yet. 

Not Not at All, Just Not At Home

Not at Home is a free, durational piece of art depicting the awful extents that Irish women are forced to go to in order to have a safe abortion. 

'In June 2017, we visited BPAS Merseyside in Liverpool.'

'From these texts and our experience of recreating this journey, we are creating a durational art work featuring video, sound installation and live performance.'

The performance will take place at NCAD as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival.

Why Wont You Have Sex With Me?

An inclusive conversation about the sex lives of those with disabilities, Louise Bruton promises to deliver a fresh insight into preconceptions, societal expectations and sexuality. 

Three of four dates for this Project Arts Centre Show are already sold out, so you better act fast.

Presuming you are one of the 1.1 million subscribers to the Facts YouTube channel, you will already be familiar with Davey Reilly.

Charged by an ebbing nervous energy emitted in the form of searing self depreciation and imaginative elocution, prepare to explore the themes of death, existence and online simulations all in the space of an hour. 

Off beat nuances and obscure references abound.

We're All Mad Here

If immersive, head scratching and thought provoking art installation is your jam, then step right up. 

Created by Grainne O'Carroll, We're All Mad Here presents the viewer with a combination of visual art, theatre and dance.

Foil Arms & Hog: OinK

These gentlemen need absolutely no introduction. 

Breathing new life into the discipline of sketch comedy, the trio have seen massive success in recent months, both online and IRL. 

Sean Finegan, Conor McKenna and Sean Flanagan will have you in stitches thanks to their imaginative, authentically Irish and occassionally ridiculous theatrics.

The move to secure reproductive rights for Irish women has been a major social and political issue in Ireland in recent years, as the call to repeal the 8th amendment has gained major traction.

One Instagram page popped up recently and caught our eye in a big way, as it shared a number of harrowing quotes from women who have faced the daunting issue in Ireland.

Not At Home is an art campaign which aims to make visible the experience of Irish women who have travelled abroad to procure safe terminations.

The collective want to make the lived experiences of women who travel visible to the public.

'We want to make visible the Irish women travelling to access safe abortion services,' reads the project description.

'We are inviting women to contribute confidentially or otherwise.'

The collective are also selling jumpers carrying their slogan – 'Not not at all, just not at home.'

They can be found online or in store at Nine Crows from either their Dublin or Galway locations. 

All proceeds from the sales of these jumpers go to covering the costs of the Not At Home production in this year's Dublin Fringe Festival

The production, called Not at Home, will be free, and will depict the awful extents that Irish women are forced to go to in order to have a safe abortion. 

'Since April 2016, we have been collecting anonymous testimonies from women online.'

'We now have a crowd-sourced text of these women’s experiences of travelling abroad.'

'In June 2017, we visited BPAS Merseyside in Liverpool.'

'From these texts and our experience of recreating this journey, we are creating a durational art work featuring video, sound installation and live performance.'

The performance will take place at NCAD as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival.
