Hans Kudlich began his career as an assistant at the Burgtheater in Vienna but these days he not only designs for theatre and musical theatre but also works in – as he calls it – “temporary architecture”, i.e. films and exhibitions.
Since autumn ’05, he’s been Technical Director of the “Volkstheater in den Außenbezirken” but his work also takes him throughout Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
His designs include: Der Talismann, Freiheit in Krähwinkel and Weiningers Nacht in the Volkstheater, Miss Saigon, Jesus Christ Superstar and Tommy at the Theater St. Gallen, the “Romy Gala”, and exhibitions for the Joanneum Graz, Kunsthalle and Centre Pompidoux.
At Vienna’s English Theatre he has designed ten productions, including 84 Charing Cross Road, Corpse, Bedroom Farce, Gaslight, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf.
