My research is situated in the field of performance studies on the border of applied social studies and theater studies. To be more precise: as a performer and performance theorist, my subject of interest and my mode of dissemination overlap:
I am interested in exemplifying, citing, and staging ideas, questions and hypotheses so that I am able to speak with a topic – and not merely about it. Following, my research explores how performative practices possibly bring forth knowledge. Since October 2016 I hold a professorship for aesthetics and performance at MSH Medical School Hamburg.
