Dr. Stefan Bläske, born 1976 in Germany, is head of dramaturgy at NTGent. He has been working as a dramaturge for Milo Rau and the IIPM – International Institute of Political Murder since 2014. He studied theatre and media studies, philosophy, politics and policy (in Heidelberg, Erlangen, Rennes and Speyer) and did his PhD at the university of Vienna on "Self-reflection and Media Reflection in contemporary theatre". He worked at the state theatre in Munich (Residenztheater) and taught at several universities and arts schools.
With Milo Rau, he worked on several of his own projects such as Empire (coproduced by Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels) as well as in German city theatres such as Schaubühne Berlin (Compassion and Lenin). His first project in Ghent was Five Easy Pieces, produced by CAMPO, which won several prizes in Europe and was invited to the Theatertreffen festival in Berlin. The German theatre critics selected Stefan Bläske as "dramaturge of the year" ("Theater heute") in 2017. During his first season at NTGent, he was the dramaturge for Lam Gods and Oresteia. In the 2019-2020 season, he will take care of the dramaturgy for Epiphany and provide dramaturgical support for Histoire du théâtre II.
