The intensity of stage work has been fascinating me ever since I was little. Today I am writing and developing plays for the theatre. Also I am consulting for stage projects and with my artist collective THEATERBOX I’m responsible for fundraising and project management as well. Also I have a great network and a good connection to the cultural politicians.


I especially love developing new formats and am always thinking participative. With sound dramaturgical methods I am happy to untie the knots within concepts and constellations of rehearsals. My own plays focus on playfully questioning social norms. I always have an eye on the youngest audience and love the challenge of funny kids theatre which takes the small ones seriously.
