Pan Pan Platform at Dublin Fringe Festival in partnership with AOB Arts Management

Connecting experienced and emerging producers with exciting artists.

Pan Pan is delighted to partner with Dublin Fringe Festival and AOB Arts Management in presenting Pan Pan Platform at Fringe. A new initiative that connects experienced and emerging producers with exciting artists. The company was associate producer on four Fringe productions in 2018, Unwoman Part III by The Rabble and Maeve Stone, My Dad’s Blind by Anna Shiels McNamee, Oneday by Dick Walsh and James Moran and Everything I Do by Zoe Ní Ríordáin. In 2019 Pan Pan and Dublin Fringe Festival formalise their aligned allegiance to new and innovative work.

“Developing new performance ideas is at the centre of Pan Pan’s raison d’être which is born from a desire to be individual and provide innovation in the development of theatre art. We fully support the emergence of new work from young and innovative artists and are delighted to support the two shows with AOB Art Management at Pan Pan Platform at Fringe.” Pan Pan

AOB Arts Management specialises in cultural producing, project management, and artist support and development, and works with some of Ireland’s leading creative makers and organisations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance Art.

“I am delighted to mentor such exciting programmed Pan Pan Platform at Fringe artists this Summer, I am also excited to mentor two emerging Associate Producers as part of this new initiative. I have long admired Hillary Dziminski and Richie O’Sullivan’s work and think they have the foundation to become two very strong independent producers in the future. Through this initiative, Pan Pan and I will support and guide both the makers and emerging producers through the stages of producing a show in Dublin Fringe 2019. Along with the development of new work, emerging producer development is at the core of my new company and I am delighted to partner with such an artist-centred and prestigious company as Pan Pan on this new platform. Watch this space!” Aisling O’Brien

This initiative is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.


Pan Pan Platform at Dublin Fringe Festival in partnership with AOB Arts Management.

It has the power to last for a thousand years but is often only used once. It is cheap to produce but expensive to dispose of. It has revolutionised the world of medicine and science, making it impossible to live without. You, the listener, are invited to embark on a new travelling soundscape to unearth our national relationship to the material of plastic. Devised from conversations and interviews, this sonic pilgrimage on board the DART will take you on an actual journey along Dublin’s coast to a site that is directly affected by the material.

Please note: parts of this show take place outside, please dress appropriately. Venue has limited accessibility, please contact our box office prior to booking.

Meeting point at the Science Gallery – Pearse Street




Hannah is an only child. She has an unsettling attraction to Hobbits, always misses the toilet with the toilet paper and is terrified of dying alone. But what if she could reach out and experience a glimpse of life and death through her alternate selves in alternate dimensions?

A time, space and neurosis traversing comedy show about failure, connection and our never-ending quest to find the things that truly matter. To affinity and beyond.
