Verena Regensburger studied theater, languages, literature and culture at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. From 2014 to 2017, she was assistant director at the Münchner Kammerspiele (Munich Chamber Theater), when she worked with directors such as Susanne Kennedy, Martin Kušej, Nicolas Stemann and She She Pop. Luegen was her final piece for the Münchner Kammerspiele, a play that has been performed at important theaters and festivals in Germany. She is considered one of the most outstanding new voices in German theater.
Münchner Kammerspiele is one of the most important venues in Germany, located in the city of Munich. Since its very beginning, it has brought together outstanding artists and professionals who have turned this place into one of the country’s most innovative, contemporary and cosmopolitan venues, with an important sociopolitical focus. With Matthias Lilienthal as its artistic director since 2015, the venue defines itself as ‘a new type of municipal theater’, touring abroad and working with guest directors such as Philippe Quesne, Rabih Mroué and Toshiki Okada. Christopher Rüping is currently its executive director.
