BECOME A WHERE WE LIVE PATRON AND GET A TICKET TO EVERY SHOW

Our next major project, Where We Live, presented with St. Patrick’s Festival, will take over The Complex in Smithfield for two weeks in March to present 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.

Encompassing a programme of commissioned theatre pieces, work-in progress showings, dangerous ideas, live art and an exhibition, Where We Live is a ferocious response to the theme of home that challenges the prevailing narratives fed to us by the media, the government and increasingly, the algorithms and echo chambers of social media.

SEE THE FULL WHERE WE LIVE PROGRAMME

Our Where We Live Patron scheme, which includes a ticket to every Where We Live show, will specifically help realise the following two projects:

WERKHOUSE COMMISSION
Our Patron scheme will help fund the commissioning, development and production of new short works from unknown and minority voices for presentation at our WERKHOUSE performance night.

FREE TICKET SCHEME
Patronage will help fund our free ticket scheme, where we allocate a portion of tickets to each show for those who cannot afford to attend the productions. We are committed to reaching audiences from as wide a community as possible and especially people challenged by issues around creating a home.

Where We Live features new plays by Mark O’Halloran, Oonagh Murphy, Tara Flynn, Peter Daly and Veronica Dyas; an astounding immersive exhibition from Eamonn Doyle, Niall Sweeney and David Donohoe; an incendiary talks series curated by Willie White of Dublin Theatre Festival; a one-off concert from The High Hopes Community Choir, Ireland’s first homeless choir; City on Screen – a day of screenings of excellent Irish-made films that resonate with the themes of the programme; and WERKHOUSE – a night of performance, poetry and politics from new voices, minority voices and voices not usually heard in mainstream Irish theatre and media.
