Saturday 17 March, 2018
The Complex, Dublin 1
We’re turning up the heat on Dublin City.
Expect savage bites, gut punching truths and a lot of discomfort.
Performance Sweatshop, Literary Frenzy and Centre for Outrageous Investigation: WERKhouse unites underground heroes, glorious outsiders, drama queens & ungagged 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 a gathering. A resistance. A klaxon call. A coming together to figure out how we might make it all right. With glitter.
Get dressed, get organised, get yourself to the house party.
Clock in, WERK out.
