Surprise! Surprise! - The solo shows

2008 it began with improvised story telling. For kids in a youth camp (For example the story of the 3 headless kids), and then at literature slams, where i would invent stories on the spot. Slowly it turned more and more into a more theatric experience, so 2009 I started with a Solo improvised theater long form. 

Inspired by the audience I would start a complete new story, with empty hands, no characters, songs or storyline prepared. Find some clips (in poor video quality) of my very first night long adventure: a who's done it- crime story.


The nightmare experience,  2016 Vienna

An new solo show, presented finally at the Viennese Impro Festival 4/2016 in Vienna, TaG Theatre about NIGHTMARES
Based on a true (!) nightmare of a audience member I start to improvise this nightmare but continue it after the point of wake up.
The video below is the general rehearsal that I had made during UC community day meeting. The video is boring because of total view and me going out of camera frame a lot, but in order to get an idea you can click into this show a bit :-)
There should be ready the video of the premiere until end of June 2016!
