In 1998, Stephan Bruckmeier founded the “Wiener Theaterbureau”. With the help of that association, he – in his role as director and producer – staged several theatre projects at extraordinary locations in Vienna. Thus, he produced for instance the play “Woyzeck” in the gasometer in Vienna Simmering, the Austrian premiere of ”Entertaining Mr. Sloane in the famous disco P1, the play “Orgie” at the transient hotel “Orient” or “Das Satansspiel vom Göttlichen Marquis” at the cinema in Mödling.

He always tried to cooperate with contemporary musicians and graphic artists and organised exhibitions, concerts and readings combined with cross-over-projects.

With “Schauspielerei” in Cologne, he created the Detana Art Festival. At this festival plays, concerts with experimental music and exhibitions were performed simultaneously and made this festival a special event.

Bruckmeier was always interested in both experimental, cross-over productions as well as classical theatre. He was able to realise both leading exponents within the framework of his directorships at both the theatre “Rampe” in Stuttgart and the Lower Austrian Donube Festival. He took over these directorships in 1997 (Stuttgart) and 2000 (festival) in cooperation with Eva Hosemann. He was in charge as director, fitter, author and producer.
