Details have been announced of the Tiger Dublin Fringe festival, which runs throughout Dublin City from September 5 to 20, with new dance, music, comedy and theatre.

The Company returns with new stage show The Rest Is Action, which re-imagines the cornerstone of Greek tragedy, The Oresteia, in a "radical visual feast" at the Project Arts Centre from September 4 to 13.

Shaun Dunne and Talking Shop Ensemble stage a new show about care in Ireland called Advocacy at the Project Arts Centre from September 6 to 13.  

Advocacy is about "respectfully sticking your oar in, speaking up for yourself, sticking up for each other - and the importance of knowing what goes on behind closed doors".

Jape and DJ Kormac number among the outdoor gigs at Temple Bar's Meeting House Square. DJ Kormac will be at Meeting House Square on September 6 with music from his new album, due for release in September.

Jape will be at Meeting House Square on September 12, with hardware samplers, sequencers and those old reliables, musical instruments too. www.fringefest.com 

Also on the programme is a new dance work entitled Tardigrade from Philip Connaughton, described as "a kaleidoscopic feast of lithe and raucous dance that erupts against a backdrop of a projected forest. It's Star Wars, cosmology, biology, artificiality, information overload, technology." It runs at the Samuel Beckett Theatre from September 9 to 13.

The programme also includes comedy from Fringe favourites Foil, Arms and Hog with their new show Begorrah. 

Foil, Arms and Hog have accrued over four million hits on YouTube and recently completed a 30-date world tour, culminating in a sell-out show at Dublin's Vicar Street. They perform at Smock Alley Theatre from September 5 to 7 and 9 to 14.
