Born in Munich, she studied in the master class for stage and film design with Axel Manthey and Klaus Zehelein at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since she received her diploma in 1990 she has been working as a freelance artist, and stage and costume designer in the fields of theater and musical theater. Most recently, in 2019 she designed the stage sets for “AURORA“ at HAU1 in Berlin in a production directed by Adrian Figueroa; “last park standing“ by Ebru Nihan Celkan at Schauspiel Stuttgart, directed by Nuran David Calis; and “Die Verlorenen“ by Ewald Palmetshofer at Residenztheater in Munich, directed by Nora Schlocker. She worked with Robert Lehniger at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, where she developed the stage production “faust to go.“ DAVOR is her second collaboration with Robert Lehniger.
Some “NEW Return” results faster and more unexpected than expected. Due to the ubiquitous effects of the Corona Pandemic, the Munich Biennale 2020 will for the first time become a dynamic festival. Premieres that cannot be released in Munich in May 2020 due to the pandemic will be premiered elsewhere, or in Munich at a different time.
The Munich Biennale will not stream performance-replacement pieces. It will not go online as a whole. The Internet is used primarily to provide impulses for later, physically real performance situations. We assume that many of the productions planned for the 2020 Biennial will see the light of day over the next eighteen months. The theme and spirit are to take place in the “Salon of Wonder and Views” as a unifying element over a longer period of time in various locations in a pointed manner.
In all existential crises, the arts have been a (co)decisive moment of renewal, of rethinking, of reflection, of departure, of conversion, of NEW Return, for each individual as well as for the community. Thus the dynamic Munich Biennale 2020/2021 is, with its motto “Point of NEW Return”, a metaphor for the necessary flexible handling of our present and a model for mobility, topicality and relevance of the arts.
