Dublin Fringe Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company and Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) are delighted to announce the three pairs of artists taking part in DUETS  2021:

Eoghan Carrick & Lauren Shannon Jones

Jane Madden & Clodagh Mooney Duggan

Seón Simpson & Orla Graham

DUETS is an artist support initiative made to champion professional artists working in pairs to tell one-of-a-kind stories using the unique combination of their skills. The DUETS artists are supported by the combined expertise of all three partners: dramaturgy and development support from Fishamble, networking and producing know-how from ITI and the creative platform of Dublin Fringe Festival.

The artists selected for DUETS 2021 are Eoghan Carrick & Lauren Shannon Jones, Jane Madden & Clodagh Mooney Duggan and Seón Simpson & Orla Graham. These three exciting new collaborations are currently in development with dramaturgical support from Gavin Kostick. Eoghan and Lauren, Jane and Clodagh are realising long-held live performance plans made in 2020, and Seon and Orla are creating a film theatre hybrid streaming live and on-demand.

All three new projects will premiere in September 2021 as part of Dublin Fringe Festival. You can find out more about their shows below and buy tickets now at
