Martin Miotk began his artistic career as a theater painter/sculptor at Hamburg Staatsoper under Louvrens Langenvoort. He then studied free painting under Dirk van der Meulen, as well as stage and costume design under Hartmut Meyer at the University of the Arts (UdK) Berlin. Martin Miotk has been working as a stage and costume designer and director since 2010. He has worked at theaters such as, among others, Schauspiel Düsseldorf; Residenztheater in Munich (director: Suse Wächter); Schauspielhaus Nürnberg; Oper Graz; Deutsche Oper Berlin; and Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin. He has collaborated with costume designer Andy Besuch for a long time now. The sets and costumes for the Spoliansky revue “Wie werde ich reich & glücklich“ (“How Will I Get Rich & Happy“) at Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar, and Chekhov´s “Platonov“ at Staatstheater Augsburg, as well as “Fidelio“ (director: Florian Lutz) at Oper Halle were widely critiqued. He developed the set design at Theater Bonn for a production of Elfriede Jelinek´s “Abraumhalde“ (directed by Simon Blattner), as well as for the world premiere of Svenja Bungarten´s “Bonn ist eine Stadt am Meer“ (“Bonn is a city by the sea“) at Theater Münster. He has worked on numerous projects with the theater collective “Opera Lab,“ which specializes in contemporary music, including “Love & Diversity,“ directed by Manos Tsangaris; and “Gunfighter Nation“ by Evan Gardener. In 2018 Miotk directed the musical “Sweeney Todd“ at Oper Halle, which was acclaimed by audiences and the press for its daring reinterpretation.
