Sabrina Hölzer
stage director from Berlin


Statement from the Board of Trustees

With almost invisible directorial devices and emblematic gestures, she transforms stage areas into emotional scenarios, enlarging the realm of musical sensation to include the interior space of the spectators within the echo chambers of their personal memory.

Free of agitation and didacticism, she creates visceral "tolles Theater" (Adriana Hölszky), great theatre at a high level of emotional tension.
