Oliver Zahn


Born in 1989, studied directing at the Bavarian Theatre Academy. During his studies he created the performances “SITUATION MIT AUSGESTRECKTEM ARM” (which earned him a nomination for best young artist in Theater Heute’s critics poll) and “SITUATION MIT DOPPELGÄNGER”, which has been shown at numerous theatres in the German-speaking world and throughout Europe. In 2016 he was at HAU as part of the newcomer platform of Performing Arts Festival with his “[HEIMATLIED]” (together with Phoebe Wright-Spinks). In 2017 “Situation mit Zuschauern” was shown at HAU. Furthermore Zahn took part in the project “Unacknowledged Loss” by Barbara Raes, in which eight artists examine modes of behaviour with grief and loss.
