In a late-night haze of neon and performance, live art and discotheque, the Foxtel Festival Hub is being put to WERK.

Born in the belly of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin and baptized in the fields of Ireland’s Electric Picnic Music Festival, theatre renegades THISISPOPBABY present their epic performance-art-club happening in its Australian premiere.

Part literary salon, part performance roulette, part dancefloor riot, WERK brings together underground mavericks, theatre royalty and special guest performance giants in this Molotov cocktail of fun and frenzy.
