CV

Max was born in Berlin in 1991 and raised bilingually with German and Polish as his mother tongues. 

Currently he is touring 'BROTHER' by Marco Da Silva Ferreira which premiered in Porto on 21. January 2017 as well as 'Romeo, Romeo, Romeo' by Joshua Monten which premiered on 6. December 2018 in Bern, Switzerland.

Max will be joining Norway's National Dance Company Carte Blanche in Bergen as of August 2020. 

 

Background:

Before finishing his degree Max joined Hofesh Shechter's Junior Company in 2015 and toured his triple bill deGeneration throughout Europe as well as being part of a creation with the Hofesh Shechter Company for the Royal Opera House, London for which he joined them again to restage it in 2018 for Teatro Alla Scala in Milan. 

During the tours with Shechter Junior he gained teaching experience by teaching Hofesh workshops in the respective theaters.

In his teen years Max trained AiKiDo, did some ballroom and latin dance and gained experience in theater and acting through several productions in school as well as his mother's pieces.

 

It wasn't until he finished school that he started to get in touch with contemporary dance through youth projects where he unexpectedly found his passion and after a few months started studying dance at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Frankfurt am Main in 2012.

 

In line with his studies Max got to work with international choreographers such as Iván Pérez, Margerite Donlon, Riley Watts (The Forsythe Company), Lou Menghan (NDT), Dieter Heitkamp and worked on repertoire by William Forsythe and Yuval Pick.

Throughout several performances on Frankfurt’s stages he also had the opportunity to choreograph and show his own work and took part in cooperations with my school’s acting department as well as performance/installation projects in Berlin, London, Hamburg and Düsseldorf.
