In dialogue with each other, discover the unexpected and create the impossible.

This question drives me every day:

How can we be a healthy, sustainable, inclusive cultural landscape that supports everyone in their individual, creative and spiritual needs while making a meaningful contribution to society?

Developing the theater landscape as a system

From a systemic perspective, I focus on the interconnected relationships within an organization. In view of the changes in society, I am currently interested in opening my view even further and thinking of the theater landscape as a whole - in various supra-regional, cultural-political, cross-association, cross-sector and cross-hierarchical networks on the future of theater.
