Over the past 11 years, our shows have played to over 110,000 people in Ireland, the UK, Australia, America and mainland Europe, winning five major theatre awards, with nominations for 15 more.
“THISISPOPBABY has redefined modern Irish Theatre” —The Irish Times
Highlights include: a sold-out world tour of Panti’s High Heels in Low Places; bringing 56% new attenders to the Abbey for Alice in Funderland; winning Best New Play for Trade in the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards; and RIOT smashing Dublin Fringe box office records and going on to win Best Production at the Dublin Fringe Awards.
We specialise in creating new contexts for, and bringing new audiences to, theatre. We are passionate about: explosive multi-disciplinary experiences, extraordinary new writing and the celebration of glorious outsiders.
“Not so much cutting edge, as creators of a whole new edge of its own” —The Sunday Tribune
We have created wonderlands festivals, including THISISPOPBABY at Electric Picnic Music and Arts Festival as well as creating our own Queer Notions FESTIVAL at Project Arts Centre, uniting performance giants from the worlds of queer, underground and counter cultural performance.
Named as Best Night Out 2010 by The Sunday Times, WERK was born in the bowels of the Abbey Theatre, baptized in the fields of Electric Picnic and deflowered on the banks of the Yarra at Melbourne Festival.
“Redefining theatre for anyone who has ever felt frozen out by the chandelier-heavy foyers of traditional venues.” – The Irish Times
Part nightclub, part performance roulette and part installation, WERK has become a home for guerrilla performance and glittering experimentation. Some of our greatest achievements started as a four minute ‘bit’ on the stage, or bar, at WERK.
