24-hour play by John Rogers
“I dreamt my beginning and the beginning was love…”

ARTIST SCIENTIST PRIEST is a 24-hour long one-man-show by John Rogers.  Over the course of a day the show charts the origins and rise of the human race.  Using chant, dance, food, ritual, song and soundscapes, this ambitious performance is a meditative exploration of who we are, where we come from and what our future might hold.

Come in. Stay a while. Leave. Come back again later.  Tickets are 24-hour passes that allow you to come and go, creating your own unique experience.

ARTIST SCIENTIST PRIEST premiered at the Tiger Dublin Fringe in September 2014.  It was performed at Galway Theatre Festival in May 2015.
