The Berliner Festspiele Mourns Death of Albrecht Grüß
We mourn the sudden and unexpected passing of our esteemed colleague Albrecht Grüß on 15 April 2022. For more than 17 years, Albrecht Grüß, was a part of Berliner Festspiele and realised numerous projects and productions, most recently in the position of Senior Organisation and Production Manager. His relentless curiosity, his expertise and enthusiasm have left a distinctive mark on the daily event operations and the entire programme of festivals.
With his wealth of experience and his acumen, Albrecht Grüß was a valuable partner and close associate for three directors of Berliner Festspiele (Matthias Pees, Thomas Oberender, Joachim Sartorius), ranging from “spielzeit’europa” via his recurring work for Theatertreffen to the programme series “Immersion” and Berliner Festspiele’s anniversary project at ICC Berlin. It would have been impossible not to like him, whether for his cordiality or his humour, and his sudden passing is a great loss for all his colleagues. We are deeply saddened and our heartfelt sympathy goes to Albert Grüß’ family.
Seeing what’s ahead
