In the Werkstücke (work piece) series, our assistant directors stage texts that are close to their hearts. On April 26, the new work by Michael Königstein will celebrate its premiere at Depot 2.
Michael Königstein, born in 1994 in Landstuhl, studied German and English at the University of Mannheim. During his studies, he completed his first job shadowings and assistings at the Nationaltheater Mannheim and the Pfalzbau Ludwigshafen. These were followed by permanent assistant directorships at the Staatstheater Nürnberg and Schauspiel Köln. His production of DIE TONIGHT, LIVE FOREVER or DAS PRINZIP NOSFERATU (THE PRINCIPLE OF NOSFERATU) by Sivan Ben Yishai at the Nuremberg State Theatre were nominated for the Nachspielpreis of the Heidelberg Stückemarkt 2022. In Cologne, he has so far worked on the staged concert (ORPHEUS AND) EURYDIKE in the course of the Britney X Festival.
