Felix Rothenhäusler


Felix Rothenhäusler, born in 1981, studied theatre and media science in Bayreuth and Paris as well as theatre direction at the Theaterakademie Hamburg. During his studies, he received his first prize at the International Directing Congress in Moscow and was a guest director at the Körber Studio Junge Regie in Hamburg, Radikal jung in Munich and at the Premières festival in Strasbourg. After graduating, he directed at the Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Düsseldorf Schauspielhaus and Deutsches Theater in Göttingen, among others. Since the 2012/13 season, Felix Rothenhäusler has been in-house director at the Theater Bremen, where he has adapted contemporary novels and series to the stage, such as “Sickster” by Thomas Melle, “Schimmernder Dunst über CobyCounty” or “Mr. Robot”, as well as classical works such as “Faust” or “Die Räuber”. In recent years, he has worked increasingly at the juncture between music theatre and stage, has directed Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro” in Bremen, Massenet’s “Werther” and most recently Max Frisch’s “Der Mensch erscheint im Holozän” with music by Gustav Mahler at the Luzerner Theater.

After the world premieres of “Nichts von euch auf Erden” by Reinhard Jirgl and “The Re’Search” by Ryan Trecartin, Felix Rothenhäusler will stage Eugène Labiche’s 19th-century comedy “Trüffel Trüffel Trüffel” in the coming season.
