Ruben Müller

Ruben Müller grew up in Kaiserslautern. Before and alongside his studies in philosophy and cultural studies in Berlin, he worked as an assistant and media operator at theaters and in the independent scene. This has taken him to the Theaterhaus Jena, the Pfalztheater Kaiserslautern, the Volksbühne Berlin, the Ballhaus Ost, the Kosmos Theater Vienna and the Schauspiel Köln, among others. Since 2019, he has enjoyed an ongoing collaboration with director Marie Schleef, whose joint project “Name Her. A Search for Women+” was invited to the 2021 Berlin Theatertreffen.

Ruben Müller has been studying directing at the Otto Falckenberg School in Munich since 2022 and has been supported by a scholarship from the Richard Stury Foundation since 2023. In his work, he explores the recognition of social realities in the past and present as well as possible spaces of emancipation on the internet and in digital counter-realities. His performance “S.A.D. - Secretly A Dinosaur”, which he developed together with Sascha Malina Hoffmann during his studies, was invited to the Plug&Play Festival at Staatstheater Mainz in 2024.

In the 2023/24 season, Ruben Müller will be working on the productions “Frau Schmidt und das Kind aus Charkiw” and “Die Möglichkeit des Bösen” at the Münchner Kammerspiele.
