is a German-American theater-maker and performer based in Berlin and Brooklyn.

She creates fake family parties, mass lullabies, pseudo-historical excursions, and other theatrical tantrums that endow the audience with more creative powers and foster a momentary feeling of belonging amongst strangers. Leonie’s artistic practice involves an irreverent reverence for the irrational and a relentless desire for community.

In NYC, she has performed at BAM, the Met Breuer, BAX, Performance Space NY, Mabou Mines, St. Ann’s Warehouse, Cloud City, Under St. Marks Theater, Dixon Place, The Brick, Center for Performance Research, and other venues.

Leonie also designs sound.

She received her BA from Bard College and her MFA in Theatre from Sarah Lawrence College.

Leonie is a participant of the MABOU MINES RESIDENT-ARTIST-PROGRAM 2019, BAX UPSTART PROGRAM 2018-2019 and THE MIDWIFE CIRCLE 2018-2019 TERM.
