to co-star in soul stirring WAKE by THISISPOPBABY as part of this year’s Dublin Fringe Festival

Felicia Olusanya

Co-produced with Dublin Fringe Festival in association with Irish Arts Center, New York WAKE is described as an adrenaline shot for the city. This extraordinary assembly is an outpouring, a reckoning, a release and a party.

The new show from the makers of international smash-hit RIOT is a howling, raucous, soul stirring celebration of community, regeneration, and the magic of collective catharsis. WAKE lifts the veil between worlds, where club culture meets Irish tradition in an exquisite frenzy of ritual, rave, grief and joy; conjuring up the spirits of the good times, of the marginalised, of everything that’s been and gone, toasting yesterday’s passing as we dream up tomorrow, together.

This glittering Irish Pop-wake embraces the ecstasy of letting go, the wild abandon of the all-nighter and the beauty of transformation in a rabble-rousing night of gut-punching theatre, soaring spoken word, stomping beats and outrageous circus that will leave us dancing into the dawn.

Funded by the Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaíon and created with the support of Dublin City Council and Cork Opera House this 90 minute show takes place at the National Stadium Dublin 8th Sep 2022 until —17 Sep 2022
