Suzanne caught the dance bug as a ‘Nutcracker’- child performing on stage at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. Studying classical ballet at the Staatliche Ballettschule Berlin, she grew up to be a six-foot woman and joined the Bluebell Girls at the famous cabaret Lido de Paris. Moving from demi-soloist to dance captain, she studied journalism and PR backstage in her fishnets and heels via long distance university. An internship at Barrie Kosky’s Komische Oper Berlin opened her eyes for the art of dramaturgy and inspired a move to London to obtain an MA in Theatre Criticism and Dramaturgy from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. She spent the year after graduation immersed in London’s cultural landscape as editorial assistant at London Calling, reviewing everything from exhibitions to theatre, opera, dance, food and fringe events. In September 2018, she joined The Place, London’s hub for contemporary dance, as Press and PR Manager.
