Performance Onstage: An Introduction

Performance Onstage: An Introduction

A course of workshops by John Rogers exploring the power of performance

Performance Onstage: An Introduction is a course of workshops by theatremaker and performer John Rogers taking place in The Blue Teapot Theatre in Galway’s West End. Performance is at the heart of theatre and Rogers will use these workshops to explore what it takes to be strong onstage in front of an audience. “There’s a reason a piece of theatre is called a Play,” says John. “Exploring and learning how to perform onstage is fun. It allows you to be creative and to express yourself in a innovative manner.” The workshops are open to anyone, regardless of background or age. “The skills required for a good actor or performer can be found within anyone,” John argues. “And once found and honed, those skills can be put to use in any career or walk-of-life.” Performance Onstage: An Introduction consists of six workshops running once a week from 1st March to 5th April.

John is a Galway-based theatremaker. He graduated from NUIG in 2010 with a MA in Theatre & Drama Studies. John has worked with Moonfish, Sideshow, Theatrecorp and Waterdonkey. His debut one-man-show Decision Problem [Good Time for Questions] was shown at DFF and GTF 2013. John presented his 24-hour nonstop one-man-show ARTIST SCIENTIST PRIEST at DFF 2014 and GTF 2015. In 2015 he received placement on the Suramedura Artists Residency in Sri Lanka in association with UZ Arts and Galway 2020. In 2015 John received an Arts Council Project Award for the development of his latest one-man-show P.I.S.C.E.S. which recently ran at GTF 2016.
