I was born in Karl Marx’s city in the 1980s, so I now have a so-called migrant background. I did my Abitur with it, that’s how it was back then. After that it wasn’t very straight forward. I have worked in different professions: kitchen help, teacher, nude model, social worker, of course waitress, journalist, once I was script/continuity, but I didn’t like that, you had to be quick and precise. In between, I earned a bachelor’s degree in European Studies, Culture and Economics of East Central Europe. I hadn’t learned that much about life in college. That’s why I went to Berlin. It was just a joke. I went to Berlin to study theatre pedagogy at the University of Arts. As a scholarship holder, I was supported by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, that was good. I then successfully completed it and therefore I have the academic title Master of Arts. Since then I have been working as a freelance director, performer and author in Chemnitz and elsewhere in Europe.
I have been doing official training since I started working as a freelancer. Let me name a few: the principle of (self-)tasking, documentary dance, theatricalization of personal experiences or the art of stumbling: the clown method. At the same time, however, it is above all crossing borders into unknown land that I learn most from, be it the much-invoked interdisciplinary work or meeting people I don’t know and who are different from me.
