Bio

Robert Power is an Irish artist working in various mediums who is currently in development with a brand new multi-disciplinary show set to debut in Autumn 2024, titled, A Version of Life.
The project will blend meta-narratives with Music, Theatre, Film and Visual Art and will be directed by Olivier Award Winner, Donnacadh O’Briain.

Robert’s music has previously been selected for the RTÉ Radio 1 Playlist and Record Of The Day. Hot Press Magazine have described him as “powerful, heartfelt and thought-provoking”. Subterranean Sounds, original live music curator, say he is “a natural, with the songs and the voice”.

As an actor, writer, director, producer and workshopping and development practitioner, Robert has proudly worked, trained or developed work with companies such as, Darkhorse’s Don’t Take Your Coat Off (Dublin Fringe Festival and National Tour), Curious State (St.Patrick’s Festival), Garter Lane’s A Little Room, Public Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Hinterland’s The Playboy of the Western World, Coláiste Dhulaigh’s Dry Ice Company’s Hamlet, Gaiety School of Acting’s Our Country’s Good and Brewery Lane Theatre’s A Streetcar Named Desire.

As a voiceover artist he played multiple characters in Magma Films production of the Hans Christian Andersen series The Fairytaler which ran on Nickelodeon.

Robert has also toured nationally with his one man show, A Story of Destiny, which is the first part of a trilogy of plays in the works.

His debut short film installation The Great Belief, shot along the copper coast, was screened at both Odeon and GOMA, Waterford as part of Symbiosis ii, a celebration of the arts in the south east of Ireland.

He has also performed at music, arts and boutique showcase events such as Imagine, Light Colour Sound and Boatshed London and supported artists such as Jinx Lennon and Jack L.

Robert is also Artistic Director of Hinterland, a new arts collective which aims to create and tour one-off accessible and inclusive projects which manifest positive energy and interest in the arts in smaller communities around the island of Ireland. Emerging from the stillness of pandemic, the project began with a tour of The Playboy of the Western World which visited towns and villages around the country, including Inis Meáin on the Aran Islands, a place of great inspiration for playwright, J.M. Synge.

Robert is currently studying English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin and is a proud alumni of it’s Creative Futures Academy.
