Eckart Böhmer


Eckart Böhmer, born in Santiago, Chile, in 1966 is the director of the Kaspar Hauser Festspiele in Ansbach, Germany, and a traveling speaker, author, and theater director. After studying theater direction in Ulm, Germany, Eckart Böhmer founded his own theater near Ansbach. In 1998, he began the biannual Kaspar Hauser Festspiele in Ansbach. In 2016 he was asked to take on the research of Professor Hermann Pies, who had spent a lifetime pursuing and studying documents on Kaspar Hauser. He placed this historic legacy into the center of the “Kaspar Hauser Research Circle,” cofounded with Richard Steel, at the Karl König Institute. Since then, research has been broadened and activities have spread to the United States, where regular festivals have been organized on the east and west coasts.
