THISISPOPBABY are back with their biggest show since the international smash hit RIOT. WAKE is a howling raucous soul-stirring celebration of community regeneration and the magic of collective catharsis. An adrenaline shot for the city WAKE embraces the ecstasy of letting go the wild abandon of the all-nighter and the beauty of transformation in a rabble-rousing night of gut-punching theatre soaring spoken word stomping beats and outrageous circus. Making its world premiere at Dublin Fringe Festival this September the show will leave you ready to dance into the dawn. 

 

Taking over the National Stadium Dublin 8 and highlighted as a major Dublin Fringe Festival event in Autumn this brand new show lifts the veil between worlds where club culture meets Irish tradition in an exquisite frenzy of ritual rave grief and joy. 

 

Co-created and co-directed by PopBaby’s Jennifer Jennings and Phillip McMahon its all star cast toasts yesterday’s passing as we dream up tomorrow together! Appropriating the traditions rites and structure of the Irish Wake the show explores liturgy grief togetherness and collectively imagining the future all within the framework of a wild party.  

 

Co-produced with Dublin Fringe Festival in association with Irish Arts Centre New York. Funded by The Arts Council of Ireland. Created with the support of Dublin City Council and Cork Opera House.
