THISISPOPBABY is a theatre and events production company that rips up the space between popular culture, counter culture, queer culture and high art – providing both a vehicle for our associate artists’ dreams and an electrifying access point to the arts.
Five years young, the company - led by Jennifer Jennings and Phillip McMahon - has had 11 sold out shows, won three major awards, has produced tours for other artists, ran a performance, art and electropop space at the Electric Picnic Music Festival (2008-2010), stages Queer Notions, a mini-festival of queer ideas and performance, at Project Arts Centre and regularly rips up history with performance art club WERK at the Abbey Theatre (Best Night Out 2010, Sunday Times).
You can see montages of our work here and here, and also here.
THISISPOPBABY won the David Manley Emerging Arts Entrepreneurs Award in 2009 and most recently won Best New Play in The Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards 2011 for Trade, by Mark O'Halloran.
THISISPOPBABY is proud to be part of Project Catalyst, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
Other current partners include Culture Ireland, Theatre Works, Pony Ltd., Zoetrope, The Arts Council, Dublin City Council. A big shout out to Cian O'Brien for his invaluable contribution to the company and to The Corn Exchange and the Abbey Theatre for their continuing support.
