Amy Stebbins graduated from Harvard University in 2007 with a B.A. in History and Literature. She subsequently moved to Berlin as a Fulbright Scholar, during which time she worked at several German theaters, in particular at the Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz. Her scholarship explores topics across theater, film and opera, focusing in particular on the work of actors. Artistic practice also features centrally in Amy's work. She is a recipient of the University of Chicago Arts-Science Grant (2010) and the Student Fine Arts Fellowship (2013). From 2011-2013 she was a dramaturgy fellow at the Deutsche Bank Foundation's Akademie Musiktheater Heute. Her libretto for the one-act opera Musical Land premiered at the Deutsche Oper Tischlerei in June 2014. In summer 2016, she directed and wrote the libretto for Mauerschau (music: Hauke Berheide), a commission of the Bavarian State Opera.
