Stefan Dreher

Choreographer. Performance Artist

Stefan Dreher is a performance artist and choreographer based in Munich. Until July 2023, he supervised projects of individual artistic research at the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch as dramaturge and artistic director. The processes are about the richness of facets, the idiosyncrasies, but also the needs of artists: The importance of constantly reinventing oneself and yet remaining true to oneself. This serves both individual discovery and the development of a new identity for dance theater. As a dramaturge, Stefan Dreher repeatedly refers to his own artistic work. This is characterized by visual works, installations, performances, choreographies and teaching activities.

In 2003, he founded the Loving Lucy collective, which to date has offered numerous choreographers, dancers and visual artists platforms for collective work.

He was artiste associé of the Hallen von Schaerbeek and artist-in-residence at the Choreographic Center Charleroi/Danses in Brussels. At the same time, he developed training courses for renowned Belgian companies that combine dance, yoga and therapeutic methods and have since been adopted by many professional training programs in Europe. His work includes around 30 stage and site-specific pieces as well as artworks and objects that have been shown worldwide.

Together with the director of the Tanztheater Wuppertal, Bettina Wagner-Bergelt, he directed the festival under construction of the Pina Bausch Center for the 2021/22 season in collaboration with Fridays for Future and with an artistic focus on the topic of Care Culture.

Dreher is currently completing a master's degree in visual design and therapy at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In this context, he is initiating a series of choreographies in the coming years (2024/25) with the project Dancing in the Hospital, which will make care visible as an uninterrupted dance. People who work in this field, patients, relatives and friends move in borderline situations like dancers with a body feeling that is characterized by the theme of care. Everyday life as transcendent choreography. Your own stories take center stage. Telling what moves. Dancing like a rabbit.
