Join us for a free artist talk.

Multi-award winning designer Niall Sweeney is joined by THISISPOPBABY co-Directors Jennifer Jennings and Phillip McMahon to tell the tale of the decade-long collaboration with these Irish theatre renegades.
From the fields of Electric Picnic and the belly of the Abbey Theatre to touring the world with international smash-hit RIOT—incorporating giant inflatable babies, protests over Pope posters, high heels in low places, gold medal-winning seagulls, and more—How to Make A Popbaby illustrates how Niall's design has been fundamental to THISISPOPBABY's story.
