Rüdiger Kuhlbrodt is a German film and theatre actor and director.


Rüdiger Kuhlbrodt was born in Hamburg, Germany, on 20 November 1942. After high school, he studied performing arts at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg (University of Music and Theatre Hamburg). Kuhlbrodt joined the Stadttheater Pforzheim and the Mainfranken Theater Würzburg, later the Theater Lübeck and the Städtische Bühnen Münster, and in 1975, the Schauspielhaus Bochum. After a creative break that he spent in California, Kuhlbrodt with other artists established in 1980 an alternative theater project in the former Atlantic Movie Theatre in Düsseldorf. With various projects he toured throughout West German correction institutions and other theater-distant social facilities. In 1983, he was appointed a senior director at the Westfälisches Landestheater. In 1986, he was selected by Peter Zadek to the Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg.

After a stint at the Theater des Westens in 1992, Kuhlbrodt became a member of the Berliner Ensemble. After 1996, he made guest appearances at the Kammerspiele Berlin, the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin, the Wiener Festwochen, the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz, the Schlosspark-Theater Berlin, the Theater der Landeshauptstadt Magdeburg, the Hamburger Kammerspiele, the Ruhrtriennale, the Freilichtspiele Schwäbisch Hall, and the Salzburger Landestheater. In 2002, for political reasons, Kuhlbrodt established the independent group Global Heroes that appeared with the multimedia performance America at war: a mini-series.

Kuhlbrodt lives in Berlin and in Palm Beach, Florida.
