As a trained drama educator, actress, singer and mover I spent years and years discovering the world via body, movement & emotional search. Exploring & expressing the connection between me & the world through art seemed to be the most appropriate way. Relations in Space, the discussions about form and content in art….
The way I work combines light and easy drama games to lighten the encounters and encourage people with and without stage experience to become comfortable and then slowly lead into basic physical steps of dramatic expression, using a combination of different acting methods. My current favourite is the very precise physical art of acting taught by Jaques Lecoq – integrating animal studies, children studies and mask play and turn it into a usable way of instantly facilitating it for your improvisations on stage. Precision and the moments of silence are heart matters. In my opinion, listening is the core competence of every actor and human being. And since real human qualities and encounters are the most interesting on stage. This is my main focus.
Amongst other things I am working as a director and drama educator at International People`s Theatre Berlin, at the English Theatre Berlin, for TUSCH, netdays-berlin and in various schools. Major cooperations and theatre projects, bringing international artists and institutions together, are a specialty of mine.
