Hey, I'm Martina!

I'm an actor, writer and theater producer. Born and raised in Germany and Switzerland, I now work in New York City. 

 

With my production company Lil' Explosions, I produce original work that is poetic, slightly surreal and always contains a dance number. Our plays are developed in artistic collaboration with directors, actors, designers and the audience itself. This probably explains why we have a fondness for immersive work and are constantly refining concepts of audience interaction. You can find our work performed in private apartments, art galleries and hardly ever, theater spaces.
