“Sometimes you’ve to go away to come back again
You’ve to fuck up a lot to get that proper kick of Zen
I’m afraid to admit I’m tired of roaming
But it feels a weird kinda good to be home and,
Maybe I can rise above it….?
If not… Sure Look it, Fuck it.”
Sure Look It, Fuck It is a magical spoken-word odyssey through the streets of Dublin about Missy, a returned emigrant back in town after years of trying to ‘make it’ in New York. As she returns to an Ireland of zero-hour contracts, pricey pints and living with parents until middle age, Missy grapples with job interviews, inward blues and dancing fools… and figures out what it is she really believes in.
A work-in-progress outing of Sure Look It Fuck It, written and performed by one of the hottest rising stars of Irish stage and screen Clare Dunne, played at THISISPOPBABY’s Where We Live Festival in March 2018 to sold-out houses and rave audience response.
Now brought to full production at Project Arts Centre by a stellar team of top Irish theatre makers, Sure Look It, Fuck It weaves epic comedy, athletic spoken word and dreamy live music to deliver a deeply moving tale about discovering what home really means.
Sure Look It, Fuck It is supported by Dublin City Council and Irish Theatre Institute, and presented by THISISPOPBABY with Project Arts Centre.
ISL Interpreted performance: 23 March, 7.30pm

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…Read More

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020 Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…Read More
