WERK ‡ PERFORMANCE. ART. CLUB.

JULY 18TH ‡ IRISH MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
20:30PM - 01:00AM
BOOK: IMMA.ie
DOOR TAX: €20

In a blistering haze of neon and discotheque, live art and performance, the Irish Museum of Modern Art is getting hot waxed for WERK.

Performance Sweatshop, Literary Frenzy, Dancefloor Riot & Art Wank: WERK unites underground heroes, phabulous phreaks, drama queens & performance giants in a furious and feverish night of passion.

Hatched in the sequinned bowels of the Abbey Theatre, baptised in the mushy fields of Electric Picnic, and deflowered on the banks of the Yarra at Melbourne International Festival, WERK drags her bacon back to Dublin for a one-off epic summer sizzler.

HEAT RASH ‡

These are prickly times.

It's hot and humid - you've developed a cruel itch. Blocked and swollen ducts have led to infected swelling. Irritated pimples and bulging nodes envelope your body. You are overcome with chills.

To scratch or not to scratch?

Do not overdress. Do not wrap up too tightly.
If a fever develops, contact a professional immediately.

Keep cool. Loosen Up. Apply lotion liberally.
