I grew up in the Black Forrest, Germany, and studied Psychology, before I read a book by Keith Johnstone in the train from Essen, Germany, to Bremen, Germany. From that moment on, impro grabbed me and never let me go again.
I am an improviser since 1995 and I performed in various groups, INFLAGRANTI, STUPID LOVERS, IMPROTHEATER BREMEN, IMPROTHEATER KONSTANZ throughout the years. I have developed or co-developed a couple of acclaimed shows, among others:
Click (Inflagranti 2004), Pfadfinder der Liebe (Stupid Lovers 2007), Loop (Stupid Lovers 2011), Double Date mit Kunst (Stupid Lovers 2016)
2006 I had the honour of being a member of the German Theatresports National Team at the world championship.
From 2007 I have been the artistic director of the IMPROTHEATER BREMEN, a venue dedicated exclusively to the performance of impro-longforms.
From ca. 2002 on I became increasingly interested in the theory of improvisation. By now I have published five books and one dissertation on the theme of theatre and improvisation. One of these has been translated to English (see books).
Since 2014 I am heading the research focus Performative Practice at the Zurich University of the Arts.
I am offering intelligent and well-tried workshops on different themes of improvisation and theatre (see workshops) both in German and English. I understand improvisation as a means of artistic expression and of self-growth. Many things can ONLY be accomplished through improvisation.
