3. The Circle Sessions Open Mic at The International Bar
Similar to an open mic in that they encourage members of our audience to perform, The Circle Sessions main difference is that they do not normally use a mic! The performers are there to perform and the audience are there to listen. There is a mutual respect between the two such that amplification is rarely required, which creates its own unique atmosphere.
The performers are split up into 3 different groups: impromptu, featured and regular; and performances are generally on music, poetry/spoken word, comedy, dance, short film/photography and physical artwork.
Whether you come as a spectator or you are willing to delight the audience with your performance, Circles is your place! They’d love to have you involved!
Where: The International Bar, 23 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2
When: Every week from 20:00 to 23:30
Price: Free admission
