As a trained drama educator, acting and movement coach I spent years and years discovering the world via body, movement & emotional experience. Exploring & expressing the connection between me & the world through art seemed to be the most appropriate way. Relations in Space, the never ending interest about what cannot put in words, the nature of our own being….
My work focuses on the core of human beings who come to my classes. To create connection between each other and most of all to ourselves in a light and yet profound way to encourage people with and without stage experience to become comfortable in their authentic (dramatic) expression, using a combination of different acting and movement methods.
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.
