Plays. Art. Music. Lecture. Drag. Film. Politics. wSLVzo0ycgM THISISPOPBABY and Calipo Theatre Company present a celebration of queer performance and ideas from Ireland and beyond, as part of the 2009 Dublin LGBTQ Pride Festival. This years programme includes: Playwright Phillip McMahon’s exhilarating All Over Town, a backpackers adventures in the dark underbelly of Sydneys seedy gay scene; Graphic Artist Niall Sweeneys poignant and funny performance lecture charting the rise of the Alternative Miss Ireland pageant; and Victor and Gord, a compelling and moving show from rising Irish director Una McKevitt about the complexities of family and friendship. Alongside hotly anticipated shows from UK artists David Hoyle and Bourgeois & Maurice, Panti (the High Queen of Ireland) takes part in some late night debauchery, while writer and activist Tonie Walsh curates an evocative exhibition from the Irish Queer Archive. And not to be missed, our special post-Pride march screening of Before Stonewall a landmark in Queer history on film.
