Luis August Krawen is a German visual artist working on the verge of theatre and digital art.

He grew up in Berlin, where he was a member of P14, the young people's theatre club of Volksbuehne, for several years. At the institue for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen he discovered 3D-animation as tool to develop his own artistic practice, which then led him to become a visual artist in the field of theatre and opera. 

In the last couple of years Luis has particitpated in numerous productions at many different houses such as  Schauspielhaus Zurich, Staatsoper Hamburg, Muenchner Kammerspiele, Residenztheater, Deutsches Schauspielhaus Hamburg, Maxim-Gorki-Theater and Schauspiel Frankfurt (and more).  

In 2020 he was invited to be artist in residence at Muenchner Kammerspiele, where he got the opportunity to develop his own works. As part of this he showed the installation "The Shire", which was invited to multiple festivals, as well as the performance "Nightcore". His next project "Planet Magnon", a feature-length animated movie starring the ensemble of Muenchner Kammerspiele, is scheduled for mid 2024.

In 2022 Luis created digital projections for two parts of "The Ring of the Nibelung" by Valentin Schwartz, as well as "Tristan and Isolde" by Roland Schwab at Bayreuther Festspiele.
