Caroline is a theatre director from Austria, currently based in Bristol. She is training at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and completed a BA in English and Drama at The University of Exeter in 2016.

Her work as a director and assistant director spans across a diverse range of productions, from new writing to puppetry to site-specific performances. She has directed and assisted on shows at the Northcott Theatre, the Exeter Phoenix, the Bristol Old Vic, the Wales Millennium Centre and the Waterside Arts Centre in Manchester.

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
