Alexander Giesche was born in Munich in 1982 and studied at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen and DasArts in Amsterdam. From 2012–2014 he was Artist in Residence at Theater Bremen and held the same role at the Münchner Kammerspiele in the seasons 2015–2017 with his project “Future Shock”. His technology-based projects brought him to the attention of international festivals and juries. Each of his works operates on a powerful visual level: he regards theatre as a laboratory that circulates between performance and visual arts. In the critics’ poll conducted by “Theater Heute” magazine Giesche was voted Emerging Director of the Year in both 2014 and 2016. His work has been presented at Schauspielhaus Zürich, Münchner Kammerspiele, Frascati Theater Amsterdam, Kaaitheater Brussels, at Theater der Welt in Mannheim, SPIELART Munich, Theaterformen Braunschweig, Festival d’Automne in Paris, the Junge Hunde Festival in Aarhus, and the G2T Festival in Gennevilliers, Radikal jung in Munich and the Luzerner Theater. His work “WHITE OUT – Encounters at the End of the World” was invited to the Swiss Theatertreffen in 2018.
