Martin Butler is a British born interdisciplinary artist, and stage director based in Berlin. He was trained in Drama at Manchester University, and then later Choreography and Performance at the SNDO, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

His work has always bridged and combined various disciplines, dance, theater, music, new media, and fashion, and through this interdisciplinary approach, his work explores the new dramatic that the combination of different genres facilitates.

Since 1998 he has been creating performance work, at various theaters and festivals internationally. In 2012 he premiered his first opera at the Festival of Almagro, Spain, and in 2016 developed and directed the opera "Gianni" for the the Deutsche Oper, Berlin.

His art and installation work has been shown in Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Istanbul Modern, Beijing Design Week, European Media Arts Festival in Osnabrück, Fundación Telefonica in Lima, Istanbul Design Biennale, Amsterdam Museum, Pixxelpoint Festival in Slovenia, the Museum of Modern Art in Arnhem, Marres, Maastricht, Mediamatic, Salon Amsterdam and Olympus Perspective Playground, in Berlin, Zurich, Cologne, Copenhagen, and Barcelona.
