This week I am working at Theater Gütersloh, creating a piece of music theatre with 75 children, 6 actors and 3 musicians.

1984 Back To No Future
In April 2021 Gob Squad ‘premiered’ a new touring show “1984: Back to No Future” at HAU2 in Berlin. I provided technical management and created the lighting design.
