Felizitas Stilleke (*1983) is a freelance dramaturge/curator from Germany. She studied German Language and Literature Studies & Educational Science at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum [B.A.] and Literary Studies/Kulturpoetik at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster [M.A.]. Since 2007 she has worked as a dramaturge on various projects within theatre, dance and performing arts in Münster, Cologne, Mülheim (Ruhr), Göttingen and Berlin, including collaborations with SEE!, Ben J. Riepe, mouvoir, subbotnik and Drama Köln.
Stilleke co-curated the theatre festival of independent performing arts in North Rhine-Westphalia, FAVORITEN 2014 (with Johanna-Yasirra Kluhs), and was dramatic advisor to the international THEATER FESTIVAL IMPULSE 2017, under the artistic direction of Florian Malzacher. After that she was invited to the BangaloREsidency in India by the Goethe Institut two times and organized the BUNDESFORUM 2017, a The National Family Forum of Independent Performing Arts about flexible federal funding systems. 2018 she curated the newcomers plattform INTRODUCING at the Performing Arts Festival Berlin and was responsable for the discursive format UNLEARNING at the Berliner Theatertreffen 2018.
In her research for „Expended Curation“ Felizitas tries to find and write a new global narration of criticism and/with/through love, collectively. Carried merely by an euphoric, open will to connect social dynamics and exchange empathy, she focuses on institutional critic, an intersectional gaze and systems of solidarity.
