ditte schupp


Ditte Schupp, born in Wiesbaden, spent her childhood at the Franconian Theater Castle Maßbach in Lower Franconia. There, her mother worked as a stage set designer and her father as an actor and director.
This circumstance led to her early introduction to acting, singing and performance. In 1982-1985, she visited the New Munich Acting School which she absolved in 1985 with the stage maturity exam.
Various engagements in different city theaters in Germany followed, as well as participation in street performance theater with an international troupe and also experiences with experimental theater.
She also played in many television plays and movies, the latest being „Autistic Disco“ (directed by Hans Steinbichler) which opened in Germany in 2007. Furthermore, she works as a sought after professional speaker: commentary, radioplays, readings, commercials and also voice dubbing for film.
Starting in 1990, she began to develop solo-projects for herself and to perform these at different locations, such as her song evening „Oh I‘m so in love“ in the mirror tent of a Munich sommer festival, „How to be a filmstar“ in the framework of the Munich film festival or „of blessed body“ that she played in 1999 when she was highly pregnant until two weeks before delivery. Since June 1999 she is the mother of a son.
Early and jarring experiences with death as well as an increasing interest in Buddhism influenced her work and culminated in the wish to bring to life a cross-border project of acting and visual arts on the topic of death.
Her special focus lies on bringing people together who normally address this topic on their own.
