    The Complex is based in the Markets Area of Dublin City Centre, just off Capel Street. Comprising a Warehouse Theatre, Gallery and Studios, The Complex offers a welcoming and inclusive space for art of all kinds.

    The Complex is run by creative artists. Since February 2009 we have staged a rich programme of artistic and cultural productions, exhibitions and events in the Dublin 7 area.

    From our original home in Smithfield Square, and more recently our base at Benburb Street, we have now moved into our new permanent premises at Little Green Street, next to the old Fruit and Vegetable Market. Our new arts centre features nine artist studios as well as two performance areas, rehearsal and exhibition space. As the North West Inner City’s new live arts centre, The Complex complements the regeneration of the Markets quarter, attracting people from the locality and beyond to this historically rich and significant area of Dublin’s Inner City.

    Our focus is on powerful work with social value, presented through an exciting innovative programme of original theatre, inspiring visual arts, music, comedy, dance and circus.

    The Complex has two performance and exhibition spaces. The upstairs space has a capacity of 260 people. It is a highly versatile space that can be adapted for all forms of artwork including live theatre, concerts, circus, performance art, music concerts, rehearsals, workshops and auditions as well as visual art exhibitions and launches. The downstairs space is more intimate, with a capacity of around 50 people, and it is particularly suited to acoustic music events. Alternative stagings such as promenade, round, traverse and immersive theatre are encouraged, and turn arounds are assisted by the venue staff. The venue is fully equipped with lighting and sound rigs and lighting for visual art exhibitions.
