Thomas Plischke is Professor at HZT Berlin. He was born in Aschaffenburg and has been working as a choreographer since he graduated from the Performing Arts Research and Training Studios (P.A.R.T.S.) in Brussels in 1998. His works have received a number of awards and been shown internationally. Since 2001, he has been working continuously with Dr. Kattrin Deufert as the artistwin deufert&plischke.
Theatre as a social situation – from the rehearsal together all the way to the performance – is the motor for choreographic form and the artistic expression of deufert&plischke. Their works are written collectively: from their first cooperation in Europe Endless (2002), in which the fictional biography of the artist twin emerged, all the way to a cooperation with over 20 artists in 24h DURCHEINANDER (2015). In between these two poles there are work series (Anarchive I-III, the Entropischen Institute and Emergence Rooms); here deufert&plischke have been developing their model for a new epic theatre.
