Sidney Kaufmann

I was born in Speyer, where I also went to high school. My initial interest in literature was immensely broadened when I visited a production of Kafkas’s »The Trial« at the Nationaltheater Mannheim. I began to regularly go to the theatre and also became a member of the theater group at my school. After a while I realized that I wanted to be even more integrated in theatrical projects and therefore decided to apply for a Voluntary Year of Social Service in Culture at the Schaubühne after my graduation. Now I work here as an assistant since September 2016.

»During a theatrical performance I am able to dive into the thoughts of someone else, which gives me the chance to discover new perspectives on the world and myself.«
