Growing up in a small German town, Lukas always loved to travel to historical places across the globe to find not just inspiration for his costume and scenic designs but also to find light in any shape and form at any place in this world.
In 2017 Lukas received his bachelor in costume design at the Hamburg University of applied sciences and started working as an assistant in Moscow, Zurich, Salzburg and at the Berliner Ensemble.
He designed his first big musical My Fair Lady at the Opera Chemnitz, directed by Erik Petersen, who he will collaborate with in winter 2021, where Lukas will design the set and costumes for the operetta Viktoria and her Husar at the Theater Bremerhaven.
“In times like these I want to encourage all theater artists in this world: Theater can and will always exist! We humans will always have the urge and need to be entertained and so will I do my obligation as a storyteller!”
In 1778 the young wolf killer Lestat frees himself from his life with his oppressive family in Auvergne, France to become an actor in Paris.On the verge of becoming finally free, Lestat gets dragged into the night and transformed to a vampire by the dark creature Magnus.
After experiencing loss, sadness, and loneliness he lived one mortal life to gain more power and wisdom than he had ever before, still looking for a purpose of this immortal life, Lestat embraces one thing: He died young, but he will live forever…
I see Lestat as force, he feels like the weather, always changing, bold, loud, quiet, and soft. Like water. I am thinking about the decisions we make when we are weak. A thirst, controlled and uncontrolled. Through losing Lestat gains power…

The story of Hekabe is about a Queen who, due to a war looses not just her power, with the death of her two children Polyxena and Polydoros she looses everything in the end and only sees one way to bare the Los: The revenge on Polymestos gives her what she wants, but the end not what she desperately needs- her children back in her arms!
What is left? What remains? Hope, that our loved ones survived. Hope, that our friends can help us. Hope, that what we tried so hard to protect is still there… Somewhere…
The silence of death is unbearable. It makes us crazy. Like a worm inside of us that climbs up our throat that just wants to get out, like a scream from deep inside of us.

Further Than the Furthest Thing
We have two worlds in Further Than The Furthest Thing: The one world is the island Tristan da Cunha in 1961, a remote island, a special place in the world, not many people know about far off of electricity and cars, ships only come every 6 months to visit and bring other necessities.
The other world is Southampton, England, another island but entirely different to Tristan da Cunha. Electricity. Jobs. A different future.
What are the islanders deciding when they have to choose where they want to live?
