Failed By Design Description (Above)
Design is all around us, and it’s mostly shit. Allie and Cian have spent their lives being good little designers and doing what they’re told by their heartless corporate overlords, but now they’re rebelling. They’re gonna redesign the whole damn system, one room at a time in this interactive comedy make-and-do show. This isn’t your mom’s design lecture. This is punk. This is rave. This is design disobedience!

Platforms (Below)
Dublin’s sharpest drag artists and trans comedians put the alt-right through the ringer in a biting satire of a media environment that not only enables hate speech, but cheers it on. No faux-outrage too faux, no dog-whistle too shrill, no moral panic too panicky. Conspiracy theories with better contour: fake news has never looked this fabulous and mass hysteria has never been this, well, hysterical. Any familiar (and litigious) Irish faces are entirely coincidental.
