The Live Collision International Festival returns this month to shake Dublin up with some explosive live art. Performers will pack out the five-day programme with works set to provoke, entertain, expand conversations and push boundaries. Here are our top tips:
Legends of immersive theatre, ANU, will present Faultline, a work in development exploring the Irish Queer Archive at the National Library of Ireland and the 1982 murder of gay Dublin designer, Charles Self.
Artist Stacy Makishi intriguingly draws inspiration from Twin Peaks, Ingmar Bergman and no less than George Michael in her rowdy revivalist rally, The Comforter (pictured).
Queer favourites, wordsmith Vicky Curtis and Stephen Quinn of the epic Spicebag, will feature amongst others in Bite Size // Scratch, a fast and furious look at the next generation of dynamic artists.
Make your own performance piece on the dance floor at Nu Roots, an epic mash-up of African and Irish talents, or party on down with the return of the awesome Trans Live Art Salon throwing the closing party to end all parties – All Trans On Decks.
