Katherina Lindekens (BE, 1983) holds Master’s degrees in Dutch and English literature and linguistics (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) as well as Musicology (University of Leuven). She began her career as an early music programmer at Concertgebouw Brugge (2008-2011). Subsequently, she embarked on a doctoral project centred around poetry and music in English Restoration opera. Her research brought her to the universities of Leuven and Manchester, and to theatres such as the Globe in London and the Folger in Washington D.C. Alongside her academic activities, she was regularly invited to speak and write about music at various opera houses, concert halls and festivals. Throughout those years, she became increasingly interested in dramaturgy, which gradually turned into her main focus. Among her recent projects are MAfestival Brugge (2013-2019), Pygmalion Double Bill (with choreographer Femke Gyselinck, August 2019) and Les Indes galantes (with director Clément Cogitore, September 2019). Since October 2018, Lindekens works as a dramaturge at Opera Ballet Vlaanderen, where she is currently preparing new productions with directors such as Julian Rosefeldt (Schumann’s Faust, June 2020) and Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe (A Revue, April 2020). Future freelance projects include Psyche (2020) and Cupid and Death (2021) with Sébastien Daucé and the Ensemble Correspondances.
