About me

 

I am currently in the last year of my PhD in Theatre at the University of Bristol, exploring ways into contemporary ideas of staging revue extravaganzas and spectacle. My strength are in generating ideas, shaping processes of creative production, implementing events and show dramaturgy, fiddling with creative production, working with bodies and technology, and eventually wanting to go towards show direction and creative direction for live entertainment and theatre that has more to offer than a cheap thrill. As a Berlin boy, I am all for bursting creativity, roughness, beauty in the weird, techno and technology, dance and dramaturgy, forward-thinking, letting the past be the past and thinking ahead of what could be. I have worked in arts environments, but have worked on commercial projects, attempting to shape beliefs and production methods from within. I live and love liminality, working on the brink of art and commerce, liberal creation and social impact; experience, change, and entertainment. Ask me if you want to know how to keep the audience's attention for more than two hours. - Patience has been invented my dispassionate bores, I am all for thrill, excitement, beauty, sustainability, and brains. /xxa
