Born 1963 in Vienna.

 

Mag. phil. in Film-, Theatre- and Media Studies, University of Vienna.

 

Works primarily as a stage director, but also as dramaturge, producer, author and literary translator.

Since 1986 he has worked extensively in theatre, film, television and circus and has since 1993 directed more than forty plays at venues in Austria and Germany, as well as in London, where he was based between 1995 and 2000, working with Tom Stoppard, David Farr, and Michael Kingsbury. In 2000 Hans-Peter moved to Copenhagen where he directed, among other plays, the first ever site-specific production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet at Kronborg Castle in Elsinore and a cross-over arts project at the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen, in collaboration with The Royal Theatre.

In 2011 he directed his first opera production, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Bastien & Bastienne in Istanbul. The modern World première of Joseph Friebert's Das Serail will be staged at Castle Leopoldskron in Salzburg in June 2017 in his direction.

He has translated around twenty plays into German, many written by contemporary Scandinavian playwrights, and he regularly adapts classic plays for the modern stage. In recent years he has resumed theatre studies, with lectures and publications mainly related to the Scandinavian stage of the eighteenth century.
