A NIDA graduate, John Senczuk is a dramaturg, writer, theatre historian and polymath. His multi-award winning theatrical career spans over thirty years with engagements nationally and internationally in commissions as designer, writer and director for stage and screen.
He also enjoyed a concurrent career as an academic (University of Wollongong, Toi Whakaari, New Zealand Drama School, and WAAPA) where he created and taught courses in dramaturgy, creative writing, drama & theatre, and scenography.
While his dramaturgical rationale embraces ‘story worlds’ and multi-platforming, he firmly believe in the strict tenets of genre and style as applied to narrative in an expanding range of media.
He has a particular interest in Renaissance texts, heritage and new Australian work for stage and screen, and the emerging dramaturgy of musical theatre, opera and and dance.
