Allow me to share with you with my love of history and theatre!
Descriptions in English of past projects are also to be found on my profile on LinkedIn
I am a certified tour guide, experienced event manager and freelance live interpreter with a passion for costumed first and third person formats.
After my first class degree in English and Cultural studies, gained at Regensburg University, I moved to Edinburgh for work and stayed there in the festival and tourism sector for several years, working in the Fringe Festival main office, programming a six-space theatre venue, guiding Literary Pub Tours tours, looking after performers for the Traverse Theatre and Lung Ha's, and interpreting the Camera Obscura to visitors from all over the world.
Back home, I continued event management jobs, above all, large-scale outdoors formats for the city councils of Heidelberg and Karlsruhe, was heavily involved in a variety of theatre projects and, over the last five years, specialised increasingly in museum education - aiming to combine a set of different skills to the benefit of our guests.
Though I am mostly active in Germany, I occasionally teach or perform elsewhere (appearances abroad include the "Glorious Georges" programme at Hampton Court Palace, interpretation by Past Pleasures Ltd.).
I devise, write, direct and act scenario- and script-based museum theatre for one or more performers. Sometimes this is performed by myself, or I prepare programmes to be performed by others. Through my involvement with the International Museum theatre Alliance IMTAL Europe, of which I am chair, I am in contact with colleagues all over the world.
I regularly attend seminars / conferences to increase my awareness methods and inventiveness. For those who already use museum theatre, but want to professionalise their offering, I also teach courses on the subject of live interpretation, on behalf of the Rhineland-Palatinate museums association.
All my offerings are available in English on request, I have a basic knowledge of French and god working knowledge of Spanish. To see a list of my past projects, visit my profile on LinkedIn.
