Claudia Jessat, owner, director of German courses & productions
Before joining UBI Theatre I studied Cultural Pedagogy at Merseburg University of Applied Sciences and specialised in Theatre in Education (TiE). My passion has always been to use theatre in social and learning contexts.
Before university I gained acting experience with different companies and theatres in Leipzig. After university I started doing work in TiE with social groups.
To me, UBI Theatre is about creating a home and a safe environment for our participants.
What I love most about my job is that theatre can teach people to overcome their limitations, to be open and get out of their own skin whilst trying things they’ve never done before. I love watching them become stronger, often happier and definitely more creatively satisfied because of our courses.
