DANCE AT THE DUBLIN FRINGE FES­TI­VAL 1850-374643 www.fringe­fest.com Luck­ily we have the Fringe Fes­ti­val to rem­edy the woe­ful un­der-rep­re­sen­ta­tion of dance on the arts fes­ti­val cir­cuit. You’ll find a re­ally rich and edgy se­lec­tion of dance pro­duc­tions here. Apart from four triple bills fea­tur­ing Ir­ish and in­ter­na­tional com­pa­nies, award-win­ning Rus­sian com­pany Derevo re­turns with Ket­zal (above), an­other stun­ning, dream­like pro­duc­tion; and Nor­we­gian com­pany Jo Strøm­gren, which won the Sex­i­est Show Award at the Fringe in 2005, comes back with a new show, The Con­vent. Brazil­ian chore­og­ra­pher Lia Ro­driguez presents a vis­ceral pro­duc­tion, In­car­nat, based on Susan Son­tag’s es­say The Pain of Oth­ers, that show­cases vi­o­lence and our re­ac­tions to it. And many other Ir­ish com­pa­nies and chore­og­ra­phers, such as Ríonach Ní Néill and junk ensem­ble, also fea­ture. Who can make choices? Just see them all. CHRIS­TINE MAD­DEN
