Robert Lehniger (b. 1974 in Weimar) studied visual communication and media design (experimental television) in Weimar, and since then he has been working as a director and video artist. In his film works, stage productions, video installations, and transmedia projects he explores the interface between theater and digital media, and he plays with the forms of media narration in real space and on the internet. His works are based on novels, films, plays, and play developments, and are being performed at the following theaters and opera houses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland: Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus; Deutsches Theater Berlin; Schauspielhaus Zürich; Schauspiel Frankfurt; Münchner Kammerspiele; Volksbühne Berlin; Burgtheater Wien; Residenztheater München; Theater Neumarkt in Zurich; Theater Bremen; Staatsschauspiel Dresden; and Deutsche Oper Berlin. The production in Dresden of Rainer Werner Fassbinder´s “Katzelmacher“ was invited in 2015 to the Theatertreffen der Jugend in Berlin.
