WAKE, the smash-hit theatrical phenomenon, returns to Dublin’s National Stadium in March. From THISISPOPBABY, the hit-makers of international sensation RIOT, WAKE is a home-grown arena party uniting a ferocious full band with the most extraordinary circus, aerial, dance and spoken word artists in the land. Expect wild acrobatics, Irish trad-with-a-twist, searing hot variety acts and outrageous cabaret. This dazzling explosion of past and future makes for an electric night out with your very best pals. This is a high-octane, heart-thumping night out; a celebration of life, of togetherness, of grabbing the ones you hold dear and screaming, ‘I Love You’ over the music.

It’s a party! Consider this an open invitation.

 

Originally created with support of The Arts Council of Ireland, Irish Arts Center New York, Dublin Fringe Festival, Dublin City Council and Cork Opera House. 

World Premiere September 2022 – National Stadium Dublin as part of Dublin Fringe Festival. WAKE runs as part of St. Patrick's Festival, 2024.
