Peter Lorenz

Fellow

While studying applied theatre studies in Glasgow, Peter Lorenz worked as a clown and assistant director in drama and opera (including Scottish Opera, Vancouver Opera, Theater St. Gallen, Cologne Opera, Innsbruck Festival of Early Music and Bayreuth Festival). His own productions and experimental performances in Austria, Germany, Great Britain, Canada and Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he co-founded the Street Arts Festival Mostar in 2012, move between contemporary theatre, sound performances and spatial installations. The opera STILLHANG with Peter’s set and collaborative direction at the Tiroler Festspiele in Erl received the Austrian Music Theatre Award. His most recent works include the experimental sound theatre HOW DEEP IS THE SEA, the interactive performance machine in a pizza box UNSICHTBARE STÄDTE INNSBRUCK and his production of Neil LaBute’s FETTES SCHWEIN at the Tiroler Volksschauspiele in Telfs.
