Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival

For its 20th anniversary the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival with the support of the French Embassy in Ireland presents two daring performances for the public to experience:

“2Fik does Strongbow (and Aoife)”

5 & 12 September 2014
(France / Québec / Morocco)

GIFFrench/Québecois/Moroccan artist 2Fik does an 8-hour photoshoot staging 2Fik does Strongbow (and Aoife) in a bold and cheeky reworking of the classic painting depicting the Norman conquest.

Merging gender, race play and high fashion, the photographer and performance artist 2Fik will perform more than 80 characters from the famous Daniel Maclise painting The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife to create a contemporary version. Questioning Irishness, religion, gender and history this reinterpretation will feature characters from his repertoire and the local Irish context.
Posing as men, women and teenagers, his appearance evolves over the eight hour performance. The final result will be unveiled on 12 September and photos will be exhibited from Sep 12 — 20 at Filmbase.

Project support from Dublin City Council Events Office, Tiger Dublin Fringe, the French Embassy in Ireland and the Québec Government Office, London. Artistic residency supported by Generator Hostel.
