Short Bio

Luise Ehrenwerth (*1991 in Erfurt) is a costume designer, scenographer and passionate maker. A main interest in her artistic work lies in the versatile sensorial ways of perceiving scenic environments and their influence on the people who interact with them. Thus, in 2018, as part of her diploma at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, she developed the augmented audio reality project SCHRAPP SCHRAPP BUFF ZONG in collaboration with Nele Bühler, where they explored the narrative potential of acoustic spaces using binaural 3D audio recordings made with dummy head microphones.

In 2020, within the Denkzeit-scholarship of the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony, Luise Ehrenwerth pursued the question of how Augmented Reality can be used to create virtual and at the same time haptically experienceable scenographies.

Among others, projects with her participation have been carried out at the DNT Weimar in 2019 (Co-stage design with Nurkan Erpulat for the Kunstfest's opening production "Reichtags-Reenactment"), for the documentary film ANMAßUNG (set design, directors: Stefan Kolbe and Chris Wright, Berlinale 2021) and in collaboration with the media theater collective machina eX the theatrical classroom game " - Die Lernmaschine" (Landesbühnen Sachsen/Theater Baden-Baden, 2021). 2021-22 Luise Ehrenwerth was a fellow at the Academy for Theater and Digitality Dortmund with her research project "connecting:stitches", in which she brings together costume design and digital technologies such as AR and microcontrolling.
