Irene Mattioli (born in 1976 in Rome, Italy) lives and works as a director in Zurich. After completing a course in directing at the Accademia Nazionale "Silvio D’Amico" in Rome, she came on a scholarship to Berlin in 2004, becoming active in the Acting course at the Universität der Künste. As founder of the Bagatelle No. 5 ensemble, she has staged works by such authors as Ingeborg Bachmann and Jean Cocteau. Projects such as "Working for Paradise", a workshop as part of the Napoli Teatro Festival Italia, underline the diversity and range of Mattioli's still young career. Her special relationship with the medium of music is shown especially in her musical-theatrical interpretation of Ingeborg Bachmann's novel “Malina”.
