Welcome! It's lovely to have you here.

 

I am Lavinia Heilig - actress, singer and writer.

 

I completed my acting training at Cours Florent Paris and John Strasberg Studios New York.

 

Since I continuously keep training, I attended classes with Mel Churcher and a yearlong masterclass in Meisner Technique and camera acting.

More information can be found on my casting profiles embedded in the links below.

 

In addition, I earned a master's degree in Modern Philology and work as a freelance writer in the fields of prose, screenplay and stage play.

For further information please click the tab, Writer.

 

My work received funding from Frankfurt's Office for Science and Art, the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, the Hessian Theater Academy, the VG Wort, the Musicfonds and Geerdes Midimusic Berlin.

 

It is a special interest of mine to use the whole range of my human expressiveness.

 

I am excited to work with you and look forward to hearing from you.

Actress

 

As an actress and singer, I have worked on more than 50 film, theatre and musical theatre productions at a national and international level.

 

Contributing my part to a well told story and touching the audience with a truthful and authentic expression of my character’s worlds are the most satisfying elements of my work.

Writer

 

My working experience as a freelance writer includes all my academic writing, copywriting and content creation (online and print) as well as writing screenplays and stage plays.

Academic writing

 

After graduating from high school (advanced courses: Latin and German) and training as an actress, I completed my master's degree in theater, film and media studies and Romance studies with top marks.

 

My master's degree thesis broaches the 20th Century Joan of Arc movies, comparing their dramaturgy and production in relation to the specific political background of their time.

 

Setting the focus on Carl Theodor Dreyer’s movie The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) and Luc Besson’s movie The Messenger (1999) since they represent chronological markers bordering the last century.

 

The work has been examined by Prof. Dr. Heide Schlüpmann and Prof. Dr. Hans-Thies Lehmann.

 

Further research topics of mine include (selection):

 

  • The Commedia dell'Arte - hierarchie structures and political subversion
  • The Role of Iphigenia in Euripides' Iphigenia at Aulis
  • Deconstruction and construction of identity:

        Six characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello

  • Female characters in Henrik Ibsen's work:

        The Lady from the Sea in the contrasting context of European symbolism and naturalism

 

  • Rooms and spaces in Stanley Kubrick's work
  • RoGoPaG: La Ricotta by Pier Paolo Pasolini
  • Bodies on screen and construction of identity in Love me by Laetitia Masson
