Please tell me: What is the correct order? I am a Berlin-based Dramaturg, Performer and Researcher and constantly looking for new approaches.  After studying Scenic Arts at the University of Hildesheim, I graduated from Performance Studies at the University of Hamburg. Meanwhile, I started working with collectives like „political beauty“ or Rimini Protokoll. Additionally, I’ve been working as an assistant for the Online Department of the german news broadcast Tagesschau. All of my different fields of work are unified by the urge to touch on social and political debates to find their inherent poetry.
