Projects

Over the years, I have had the chance to be involved with teaching, creating, leading many different projects in the USA and Germany. Here is a preview of a selection of different projects:

Shut Up And Sign_Speak

Since 2012, I am one of the artistic directors and workshop teachers of Shut Up and Sign_Speak, a project that encourages the collaboration between deaf and hearing artists to create spoken word, hip hop and sign language performances for the stage. The goal: The development of a show that is equally accessible for a deaf and hearing audience.

HEINRICH BÖLL STIFTUNG

In collaboration with the Heinrich Böll Stiftung Brandenburg, I worked creatively with youth who had spent a year learning about the ways in which national socialism affected their local communities. We used spoken word, animation and photography to reflect their learning processes and created Digital Storytelling films to present at their local museum.

Gendersender

For five years, I was one of the artistic directors and workshop teachers for a project titled Gender Sender in Berlin. Through multimedia workshops in spoken word, animation, poetry, and digital storytelling, participants create stories that explore gender in creative, multifaceted, non-normative way. Stories that are like us: complex, intersectunal, authentic, and speaking from the heart! The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth through the program “Demokratie Leben!”.
