Emre Akal

Emre Akal is an author and director based in Munich. His works, which operate at the interface of choreography, installation and image composition, have been shown at the Münchner Kammerspiele, the Thalia Theater Hamburg, the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, the Schauspielhaus Graz, the Schauspiel Leipzig and in the independent scene in Munich, Stuttgart and Vienna, among others. He has received several awards for his plays, such as the exil dramatist prize of the WIENER WORTSTAETTEN, the Förderpreis für Theater der Stadt München and the Bayerischer Kunstpreis für Literatur.

On his initiative, the Ayse X Staatstheater was founded in 2019, a social sculpture as a counter-design to the institutional theater landscape.
