PaperDolls

Gorgeous, energetic and sensory over-loaded, this autumn PaperDolls will be treating our audience to aerial performance, 360-degree surround sound, stunning visuals and a full-size paper maze! As part of ABSOLUT Fringe,  PaperDolls' self-titled show will take place over 6 nights from the 14th - 19th of September in the Complex, Smithfield.

IN THE BEGINNING...

It all started when four ladies gathered to discuss a mutual problem: they wanted to fly but had nowhere to do it in their city. Their driving passion was aerial – performing with airborne circus equipment like trapeze, hoop, rope and silks. After years of ad-hoc aerial training they had run out of patience and began an exhaustive search for a space to train. In January 2011, they finally found their training and performance home – the Complex, a city-centre venue that was the answer to their prayers.

From vastly diverse backgrounds, the Dolls found the creative chemistry between them urgently needed an outlet. They had met each other for a reason, to realise their childhood imaginings of wild adventures, mystifying spectacles and immensely invigorating happenings.

IN THE NOW...

The PaperDolls know the talent that exists in the city of Dublin and have immersed themselves in the hidden creative secrets that a city like this cultivates. Borrowing from their past lives as visual artists, musicians, circus kids, cabaret performers, yogis, carpenters and writers, PaperDolls incorporate a host of youthful Irish talent in their creative conquests. With the success of their inaugural show at the Body and Soul Festival agitating the embers, PaperDolls is currently developing a most ambitious project for ABSOLUT Fringe 2011 and are extremely excited about it.

The Dolls are working with musician Laura Sheeran to develop an original and integrative score, ambisonics technician Michael Kearns to create the multi-directional audio experience, visual artist Susan Walsh and a large team of set designers and installation artists who are building the labyrinth inside the walls of the Complex. And that’s to name but a few.

IN THE FUTURE...

The scale of this incredible project means we really need YOUR HELP. We are determined that Dublin will become a place where artists can train in aerial and go on to stage high quality theatrical productions. So we are asking you, our supporters and audience to be patrons of our show. The money will go towards essential production costs like costume and set design materials and allow us to make the first aerial show performed in Dublin by Dublin-trained artists. We want our creativity to be formed by Dublin and to stay in Dublin and your generosity will allow that to happen. Be part of this exciting process!


Thank you!
