Götz Schubert /
Immediately after completing his studies at the Ernst Busch School of Dramatic Arts, Götz Schubert joined the company of the Maxim Gorki Theater. This was followed by an engagement at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin. Already in his early productions, he demonstrated a great dramatic range.
Directors such as Alexander Lang and Thomas Langhoff very quickly recognized the extraordinary instinct of the actor in being able to move effortlessly between comedy and tragedy: whether as the rebellious, Tasso, on the edge of madness, or the envious, venomous Iago, as the odd, delusional Klaus Uhltzscht in Thomas Brussigs 'Helden wie wir‘ (Heroes like us), or the megalomaniacal dictator Hitler in George Tabori's 'Mein Kampf'. Time and again, Götz Schubert’s sophisticated, protean interpretations on stage testify to a highly developed dramatic intuition for his characters.
Performances with the Berliner Ensemble, the Residenztheater München and the Schauspielhaus Hamburg followed. Since the beginning of his career, he has worked regularly with directors who are shaping contemporary theater, including Amélie Niermeyer, Herbert Fritsch, Jürgen Gosch, Karin Beier, Peter Stein und Philipp Stölzl. Götz Schubert’s virile presence and powerful acting as well as his individual and multifarious dramatic skills testify to an outstanding acting talent who captivates audiences and press alike. He has been honored many times for his achievements in the theater, including with the Critics' Prize of the Berliner Zeitung and the 'Best Young Actor of the Year' Award, as well as the 'Deputy Actor of the Year' from the renowned magazine Theater heute.
