Since her choreographic debut in 2005, Bridget Breiner has created works for the Stuttgart Ballet, Latvian National Ballet, Kevin O´Day-Ballet Mannheim, Ballet Augsburg, and the Salzburg State Theatre.
In 2012, she was appointed artistic director of the newly formed ballet company Ballett im Revier of the Musiktheater im Revier, Gelsenkirchen, a company of 14 international dancers. Her first full-length story ballet for the company—Soot, a retelling of the Cinderella tale (Ruß - Eine Geschichte von Aschenputtel)— received Germany's most prestigious theatre award "Der FAUST” for "Best Choreography" in 2013. She followed this success with new choreography for On the Town, Swan Lake, and The Tragedies of Othello. Another dance-opera collaboration, Charlotte Salomon: Death and the Painter (Der Tod und die Malerin) with commissioned score by composer Michelle DiBucci, received wide critical acclaim and again brought her the “FAUST” award in 2015.
In 2016, Bridget Breiner was invited to the Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen, one of Europe's oldest theatre festivals. Her creation there—Prospero’s Island (Prosperos Insel)—a retelling of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, was immediately taken into the company's repertoire. In 2017, she created her first full-length symphonic ballet, The Vital Unrest, including Camille Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony and a new commissioned work by Latvian composer Georgs Pelecis. She then worked in 2018 on two adaptations of classics of ballet: The Firebird, for Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and Romeo and Juliet for her own company Ballet im Revier in Gelsenkirchen.
In 2019, she becomes the artistic director and principal choreographer of Staatsballett Karlsruhe. She creates new works for the company such as the full-length Twelfth Night.
