After many, many years I have finally been able to update my website. Selected projects created between 2009 and 2014 have been added. Along with lots of other changes I have added this blog just in case the next update takes as long to get done as this one did. I look forward to keeping you up to date as new things happen. Every now and then Ill try to get you a peek backstage or share some MAKING OF stories with you.
I hope you enjoy !
Der Blick Des Raben View of the Raven Is the latest collaboration between choreographer Tarek Assam, costume designer Gabriele Kortmann and myself. It opened on the 19th of October 2013 and is still running at the State Theater in Giessen, Germany. The performance mixes events from the private life of the American writer Edgar Allan Poe with those told in his writings. The German Composer Moritz Eggert composed new music for the production.
The Kreative haus creative house in Munster, Germany turned 100 years old in 2013. Together with my good friend and long time collaborator Jost von Papen we created a birthday present fitting for such a special house with such a long, long history. The ping pong ball thing did not work so well this time.
Last September I enjoyed working for the first time with Barrowlandballet in Glasgow Scotland. On the production Tiger/ Tiger tales. Co-created by Robert Alan Evans (Pondlife McGurk) and Natasha Gilmore (Glassgow girls) with live music by Kim Moore (Zoey Van Goey)
“Tiger and Tiger Tale is a magical dramatization and a modern metaphor for the dual nature of human beings. Go wild and catch it somewhere!” ★★★★★
- Edinburgh Guide
The show has been invited to the Imaginate Festivel and the Made in Scotland Festivel both in Edinburg Scotland 2014
