I am originally from Berlin and started dancing ballet. modern and expressive dance from a very young age. I trained and performed mainly with the child and youth dance company Tanzwerkstatt No Limit, from 1988-2000. I continued training in contemporary dance with the jilling company, Tantheaterproject Rostock, (now Tanzland Rostock) from 2001-2005 performing in many of their dance theatre pieces. Having lived in the US from 1992-94 and graduated from the German-American partnership School, JFKS Berlin in 2000, I studied for MA in English and German Studies (2000-2006). I came to Cork first as an Erasmus student (2002/03) and again to study for MA Drama and Theatre Studies w. focus on expressive dance at UCC (2005-06). For the last 10 years, I’ve trained & performed in a number of projects, mainly in contemporary dance with Inma Pavon. I have a certificate in Creative Dance Leadership for children (AHAB Academy, Berlin), a Fetac 5 in Exercise and Fitness (CSN), a basic practitioner & teacher level in KDS. Floor Barre (Hamburg Dance Institute). Currently, I am training as Community Dance Leader (The Laban Guild), kindly supported by Cork City Council. In 2015 I founded Dance Theatre Project Cork to facilitate dance, drama and language courses.
I’m creating inspiration for my dance & design summercamp in Cork coming up this July. Ready to design dance & theatre costumes? Book by 1st July if you think this might be just right for your kids! 🙂 Maria
I asked former costume designer, scenographer & puppet maker for the theatre – now the artist & superb art, sewing & drama teacher that is my mother, Sabine Boldt-Sinnecker, to take a walk down memory lane. I learnt so much from her, it’s time to share!
Although super busy, she will help me search for more costume designs & sketches of real productions. All this to give lots of inspiration & a real insight into the work of a costume designer at the theatre for our summercamp creatives!
