Immersive audio experience inspired by West End's Silent Disco on in Massimo Bar next weekend

Written and directed by Jess Harkin, I did WHAT!? is an experimental audio experience, a work in progress, that delves into the lives of young students in Galway City.

Join Allie as she navigates the ups and downs of college life, relationships, and the irresistible allure of the party scene. As her dependence on alcohol grows, Allie finds herself heading down a dark and confusing path. Inspired by Galway West End's famous Silent Disco, this immersive audio experience draws from the euphoric experience of nightlife and 90s rave culture - questioning the fine line between euphoria and destruction.

This work in progress is set to debut on May 25 and 28.
