Peter Wedel

Even as a schoolboy, Peter Wedel visited the productions of the Theater an der Ruhr in the 1980s and, not least as a result of these impressions, decided to study theater, film and television in Bochum. After graduating, he went to Berlin "for film". He works as an assistant director for cinema and TV productions and makes his own short films and social spots that run successfully on the Internet, in cinemas and at festivals. In 2015 he returned to the Ruhr area and since 2019 he is part of the ensemble of the Theater an der Ruhr. In addition to his work at KBB, he also contributes cinematic works: During the pandemic, he filmed three Potosi TV episodes, and in Der fremde Blick he accompanied Roberto Ciulli on tours of the theater on film. In antigone. a requiem, his 90-minute video montage can be seen on the big screen, and in his third collaboration with Simone Thoma, he shot a 25-minute film with her: Anatomie eines Wortes.
