We’re turning up the heat on Dublin City.

Expect savage bites, gut punching truths and a deluge of delicious discomfort.

Performance Sweatshop, Literary Frenzy and Centre for Outrageous Investigation: WERKHOUSE unites underground heroes, glorious outsiders, drama queens & unbridled voices in a furious and feverish night of passion for this town. Love and hate - so dangerously close.

The prodigal child of WERKclub, WERKHOUSE is a mixtape of moments snatched from the city. It’s an extraordinary general meeting. A resistance. A klaxon cry. A gathering, to figure out how we might make it all right - together. With glitter.

It’s all back to our House.

Clock in, WERK out.


WHERE WE LIVE is a ferocious response to the theme of home. It’s a kaleidoscope of stories about what it feels like to live in Dublin and Ireland today, told by some of the best storytellers on the island.

A programme of commissioned theatre pieces, work-in progress showings, dangerous ideas, live art and an exhibition. 

We’re taking over the Complex in Smithfield for two weeks to tell funny, devastating, exhilarating and joyous stories that imagine and re-imagine what our city and country could be.  We’re creating a TownHall, where discussion should be heated, performance will be red hot, and where opposing views are encouraged.



This St. Patrick’s Day, take part in WERKHOUSE, the prodigal child of WERKclub - a mixtape of moments snatched from the city. It’s a gathering, a resistance, a klaxon call and a night of performance, politics and partying.

We are looking for performance pieces of any genre, style or mood, with a particular interest in minority voices and voices not usually heard in mainstream Irish theatre or media.

The performance piece should be between 3-8 minutes long and be technically low fi. Performers must be available during the day of Saturday 18 March for technical rehearsal and show. Click here for more details on how to apply or visit THISISPOPBABY’s website.

The deadline for applications is Feb 2nd 2018.
