Helgard Haug

Helgard Haug studied at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Gießen and has worked with Daniel Wetzel and Stefan Kaegi in a writer-director team since 2000. Her works in the areas of theatre, audio plays, film, and installation are made in constellations of two or three as well as solo.

The focus of their work is the continuous development of the tools of the theatre to allow for unusual perspectives on our reality. For instance, Haus/Kaegi/Wetzel have declared a Daimler shareholder’s meeting to be a piece of theatre, or they have staged their 100% city series with 100 statistically representative residents in Berlin, Zurich, London, Melbourne, Copenhagen, San Diego and elsewhere. In Berlin and Dresden they developed walk-in Stasi audio plays. They are currently touring with Nigerian-European businesspeople (“Lagos Business Angels”), the paraplegic MC Hallwachs (“Quality Control” (Haug / Wetzel)), or setting cities to music for hordes of spectators with 50 headphones (“Remote X” (Kaegi)).

Among their pieces, “Shooting Bourbaki” (2003) was awarded the NRW Impulse Prize, “Deadline” (2004) and “Wallenstein – a documentary play” (2006) were invited to the Berlin Theatertreffen. “Mnemopark” was awarded the jury prize at the Berlin Festival Politik im freien Theater (2005) and “Karl Marx: Capital, Volume One” received both the audience award as well as the Mülheimer Dramatiker Preis at the Festival Stücke07.

In November 2007 Haug, Kaegi, and Wetzel received a special award from the German Theatre Awards Der Faust, in April 2008 they were given the European Theatre Award in Thessaloniki in the category “new realities”. In 2008 they received the Hörspielpreis der Kriegsblinden for “Karl Marx: Das Kapital, Erster Band.” In 2011 Rimini Protokoll was awarded the Silver Lion at the 41st Theatre Biennial in Venice for their entire work.
