Katherina Lindekens has a master’s degree in Dutch and English literature and linguistics (from the Vrije Universiteit in Brussels) and a master’s in musicology (from the University of Louvain). She began her career working as a programmer of early music at the Concertgebouw in Bruges (2008-2011) and then studied for a doctorate specialising in the poetry and music of lyric works under the Restoration in England. Her research led her to the universities of Louvain and Manchester and theatres like the Globe in London and the Folger in Washington D.C... She is invited regularly to give lectures and write for numerous opera houses, concert halls and festivals. Over the years, she developed an interest in dramaturgy until it became her primary activity. Her recent projects include the MAfestival in Bruges (2013-2019), Pygmalion Double Bill (with the choreographer Femke Gyselinck, August 2019) and Les Indes galantes (with director Clément Cogitore, September 2019). Since October 2018, she has worked as a dramaturg at the Vlaanderen Opera Ballet, where she prepares new productions with directors like Julian Rosefeldt (Schumann’s Faust, June 2020) and Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe (A Revue, April 2020). She also has a number of independent projects planned for the near future, including Psyche (2020) and Cupid and Death (2021) with Sébastien Daucé and the Ensemble Correspondances.
