With 22 shows and events from some of the best storytellers and makers on the Island, this festival-within-a-festival interrogates and celebrates what it means, and how it feels, to live in Dublin and Ireland today.
Sitting within the internationally-renowned St. Patrick’s Festival, WHERE WE LIVE is made up of red-hot theatre, exhilarating music collaborations, rapid-response performance, playful and evocative visual art installations, an iconic one-off record fair, dangerous ideas and opposing views… with a little bit of dancing to top it all off.
Featuring new work from: THISISPOPBABY, MALAPROP, Wayne Jordan with Alma Kelliher, Thommas Kane Byrne, Veronica Dyas & Complex Roots, Peter Maybury, Janet Moran & Federico Juliàn Gonzàlez, Tara Brandel & Nicholas Nwosu, Fionnuala Gygax, Rosaleen Mc Donagh, Felispeaks, Dagogo Hart & Samuel Yakura, and more to be announced
With very special events: Crash Ensemble & Mango x MathMan join forces in Zero Zero; Emma Dabiri and Willie White host an incendiary Town Hall Session; Peter Maybury brings to life his stunning exhibition in Landfall Live; DJ legend Tonie Walsh sells all his records in a once in a lifetime pop-up art market; and the Club Chroma installation is plucked from IMMA and Popbabied-Up for the closing night party.
“This year we bring together over 80 incredible artists in an even deeper investigation of the world around us today. The festival is passionate about fairness, about inclusivity and about the power of stories to provoke conversation, to foster connection, to make us pause, rethink, reframe…. and have a great night out in the process. It’s exciting to be able to bring these conversations to a national and international stage as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival programme, where we collectively imagine and re-imagine what our city and country could be.”
Tickets for all WHERE WE LIVE events will go on sale on Friday 24 January at 11.00am on thisispopbaby.com
WHERE WE LIVE is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and Dublin City Council.
