Hi, I´m Marco…
Alumni of the University Of Performing Arts Berlin/Germany (UdK).
I am 35 years old and like to be involved in all kinds of projects that look artistically challenging and yet are a fun experience.
I love to contribute to projects within the theatre, television, movies, musicals or even with music bands. My professional experience allows me to assist many styles of production in variety of ways.
I hope you enjoy the passages about my work and like my artistic resumé!
|Marco studied seven semesters of mining engineering before deciding to take an artistic career. He graduated in 2004 as performing artist at the university of arts in Berlin (UdK Berlin). Before his graduation, he had already won several artistic competitions. At the national singing contest “Bundeswettbewerb Gesang 2003“, Marco was awarded third place and the special award for chanson/song by the artistic foundation “Günter-Neumann-Stiftung“.By the summer of 2006, he had already played in many roles and productions, like “Ernst Ludwig“ in CABARET and several times as “Riff“ in different productions of WEST SIDE STORY.“ Marco has also held roles in different pieces at the Neukoellner Oper Berlin and others.
2006 – 2008 he dedicated himself to singing A Capella Music. During these two years he toured with the group 6-ZYLINDER throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Over this time he also released the album, “Butter bei die Fische!!!“, with his other vocal rock/pop band TUNEFISCH.
Since 2008 Marco played in MY FAIR LADY (Berlin), toured with the Glenn Miller-Musical MOONLIGHT SERENADE, was part of the “rhythm´n´crash-show“, AUTO AUTO! and played “Action“ in WEST SIDE STORY (Hagen).

At the same time he was hired as dancer for the musical SUGAR – SOME LIKE IT HOT at the Stadttheater Regensburg. Additionally, he was under contract with the opera Magdeburg for WEST SIDE STORY.
From December 2008 until October 2009 he was hired for the original Broadway musical SPAMALOT at the Musical Dome in Cologne for the role of “Patsy“. The show ran 8 times a week and Marco had the pleasure of singing the famous Eric Idol song, “Always look on the bright side of life“. This generated a lot of press and TV requests.
