Seán Kennedy is a performer, theatre maker and classically trained singer from Dublin. Seán makes work that blends live music and opera with his own experience of trauma and pain, aiming to be raw, intimate and affecting. He began studying vocal technique at the DIT Conservatory of Music in 2008, and in 2012 won the gold medal for the Tenor Solo at the National Feis Ceoil. He has since performed in the United States, the Netherlands, Denmark and Romania as a soloist in touring productions. Most recently, he sung the voice of the poet Yeats in The Woods and Grandma, at Smock Alley Theatre in February 2017. Seán debuted as a theatre maker in 2015 with boy, a piece about love and domestic violence, presented at the Dublin Fringe 2015, and again at the Theatreszene Festival Cologne in May 2016. He is currently developing an untitled work that previewed at Live Collision’s BITE SIZE // SCRATCH in December 2016.
