Philipp Löhle

Philipp Löhle, born in Ravensburg in 1978, is one of the most internationally performed German-language playwrights of his generation. He studied history, theatre and media studies and German literature in Erlangen and Rome. He wrote several plays while still a student. In 2008, Philipp Löhle went to London's Royal Court Theatre with a scholarship for the International Playwrights Residency. His first play »Kauf-Land« premiered at Theater Erlangen in 2005. For »Called Gospodin« he was awarded the Förderpreis des Bundesverbandes der Deutschen Industrie. In 2007 he won the work commission of the Theatertreffen Stückemarkt. »Lilly Link« was awarded the jury prize of the Heidelberg Stückemarkt in 2008. Philipp Löhle was nominated several times for the Mülheimer Dramatikerpreis: in 2008 for »Called Gospodin«, in 2012 for »the Thing« and in 2014 for »You (standards)«. He was an in-house playwright at Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, Nationaltheater Mannheim and Staatstheater Mainz. He has a long-standing working relationship with Jan Philipp Gloger, whose direction of »Das Ding« won the audience award at the Mühlheimer Theatertage in 2012. At the invitation of the Goethe Institute and other institutions, he has led writing and theatre workshops in Japan, Spain, Burkina Faso, Italy, Argentina, Ukraine and Cuba.
