Stefan Dreher

Stefan Dreher is a dramaturg, personal assistant to the artistic director of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, event specialist and yoga teacher. He loves contradictions, which he finds in their most vibrant and beautiful form in the poetry of the Tanztheater’s pieces. He cares about supporting artistic research processes within the current ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal and sees this as a special opportunity. What counts are the dancers’ unique personal characteristics, their complexities, and their ability to reinvent themselves over and over again while still remaining true to themselves. When he received the Munich Dance Advancement Award, Thomas Betz of the Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote:
“Dreher reflects on the impossibility of learning to dance while also devoting himself to executing the perfect movement. Ever original, his broad range of approaches informs his productions and dance installations, which are always of high quality, cleverly constructed and full of charm. The results are a media-savvy but genuinely dance-focused oeuvre, an outstanding artistic achievement and an unusual aesthetic standpoint.”
