Weekender: |wiːkˈɛndə|– noun – what to do in Dublin this weekend.
Thursday 25 – Saturday 27 February | Project Arts Centre | 8pm, €16/14
A collaboration between Philip Connaughton (who made the elaborate Tardigrade at Fringe 2014) and Adrian Chen, who are both performers and choreographers of the piece, Whack!! bills itself as a violent tour-de-force that mixes tenderness with anger and humour with exhausting physical feats which has apparently resulted in more than one injury for the performers in initial shows. More info here.

Nialler9’s club night returns to Tengu, with sets from your gracious host as well as Simon Roche and Gavin Elsted from Adultrock. There’s no music policy for Lumo nights but expect lots of good time indie and electronica. Ticeadaí here.
