Falk Hübner, PhD, is a composer, music theatre maker and researcher. He creates experimental stage work which fall between concert, installation and performance. Everyday happenings are a major inspiration in his work. Fascinated by (non-) communication phenomena of the individual, isolated human being in our technological age, he uses everyday experiences as inspiration for his artistic work. He reflects on these experiences by translating them into performance frameworks, staging the relationships and tensions between live performers and digital technology. In doing this he seeks to open up the individual imagination of each member in the audience, to take with them back into everyday life.

Falk is core teacher for research at HKU School of Music and is head of the research group music and performativity at the Research Centre Performative Processes of Nirav Christophe, also at HKU. He is member of various research groups as the FIRT/IFTR research groups for intermediality in theatre and performance and music theatre, and the IMS study group Music and Media (MaM).

His docARTES doctoral defense took place on November 13, 2013 at Leiden University.


Shifting Identities: The Musician as Theatrical Performer.


The focus of the research lies in the approach of reducing, denying, or taking away essential elements of music making in order to let the musician become theatrical.
