Teresa Vergho

Teresa Vergho, born in Regensburg in 1980, studied stage and costume design at the HfbK Dresden and the UdK Berlin with Johannes Leiacker and Florence von Gerkan after completing her tailoring apprenticeship at the Residenztheater in Munich. From 2009 to 2012 she was employed as a stage designer assistant at the Münchner Kammerspiele. In addition to collaborating with Johan Simons (costume designs for Elfriede Jelinek’s “Die Straße. The City. The Raid.”, Georg Büchner’s “Danton’s Death”, Richard Wagner’s “Rheingold” and Theodor Storm’s “The Rider of the White Horse”), she developed the costumes for Alain Platel’s “Tauberbach”. Since 2012 she has been working as a freelance stage and costume designer. Because of her costume design for “Die Selbstmordschwestern” (directed by Susanne Kennedy) she was nominated for the German theater award DER FAUST in the category stage and costume design in 2017.
A collaboration connects Teresa Vergho with directors such as Benny Claessens, Susanne Kennedy, Karen Breece, Ersan Mondtag, and Pınar Karabulut. She has also worked for Karin Henkel, Alain Platel, Jossi Wieler and Falk Richter.
