Dominic Huber

Stage designer and director

Dominic Huber, born in Switzerland in 1972, works as a stage designer and director with a focus on expanding reality experiences in theatrical situations.

After studying architecture at the ETH Zurich and founding his own company "blendwerk GmbH" he created exhibitions like for the Humboldt LAB Berlin and designed numerous scenographies for theatres in Zurich, Basel, Berlin, Aachen, Frankfurt, Munich, Bochum, Hamburg, Bremen, Düsseldorf, Dresden, Brussels and Lausanne. He is regularly collaborating with Lola Arias, Sebastian Nübling and Toshiki Okada.

His own theater installations were among others HOTEL SAVOY in New York City and HAU Berlin, and most recently FOREVER YOURS based on Dostoevski's “The Double”. “HOUSE” - a site-specific residential house installation - was to be seen in Zurich, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Utrecht, Cork, Warsaw and Jerusalem.

Since 2008 Dominic Huber has been working with Stefan Kaegi and Rimini Protokoll for projects such as “Heuschrecken”, the award-winning “Situation Rooms” and “WORLD CLIMATE CONFERENCE” or as co-author of “Nachlass” at Théâtre de Vidy-Lausanne now touring around the world. In 2009 Dominic Huber received a scholarship from the City of Zurich for a stay in NYC. He regularly teaches at the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK. In 2015 he was a member of the International Jury at the Prague Quadrennial for Scenography and Performance Design. With "Situation Rooms" and "The Vacuum Cleaner" by Toshiki Okada two of his projects were invited to Berliner Theatertreffen. In 2019 Dominic Huber was awarded the "Theaterpreis" by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture.

With “Urban Nature” (2021), the CCCB has tasked Rimini Protokoll and the stage designer Dominic Huber with a new project which reimagines interaction with the public and the use of digital elements in the exhibition rooms, and which reinforces the highly performative nature of the exhibitions.
