Ingrid Von Wantoch Rekowski

Ingrid von Wantoch Rekowski was born in 1967 in Bad Godesberg, Germany and is Franco-German by birth. After initially studying piano, dance and painting in the United States, she embarked on her directing career at INSAS (Institut National Supérieur des Arts et Spectacles) in Brussels. Notably she has trained with Eugenio Barba, Bob Wilson, Georges Aperghis, Trisha Brown, Alexei Levinski, Dario Fo and Anatoli Vassiliev.

In 1994 she sets up the Lucilia Caesar theatre company in Brussels, creating unusual shows and developing a polyphonic and multi-disciplinary theatricality that extends to music theatre, performance and video. Her works include A-Ronne II (1996), an interpretation for the stage of Luciano Berio’s work for radio, Rubens-Metamorfoses (2004), a video tableau vivant inspired by the painter Rubens and Raphaël, les Sirènes et le Poulet (2010) an original piece of music theatre. These projects have been staged in Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam, Sao Paolo (Brazil).

She also works in Europe as a guest director at festivals, theatres and opera houses. Her field of research is musical theatre and baroque explosion, the more hybrid, poetic and unconventional forms of theatre, and questioning man and his out-of-tune desires and feelings. Among others she has staged Cena Furiosa (1999, Monteverdi’s madrigals) at the Festival lyrique d’Aix-en-Provence, Lohengrin (2001, Sciarrino’s chamber opera) at the Berlin Biennale and La Vergine Dei Dolori (2003, Scarlatti’s oratorio) at San Carlo Naples.

In the course of her career she has worked alongside conductors Marc Minkowski, Beat Furrer, Konrad Junghänel, Rinaldo Alessadrini; composers Qu Xiao-Song, Salvatore Sciarrino, Kris defoort, Younghi Pagh-Paan and the writer Pascal Quignard.
