Josephine Hock was born in a little village in the Thuringian Forest in 1995. In addition to some musical excursions, she was already enthusiastic about puppetry and participative theatre during school. The latter initially prevailed and led to a volunteer social year at the citizens' stage of the Dresden State Theater. However, the urge to constantly revive napkins and thus tell stories skyrocketed during this year and led her to study contemporary puppetry at the Ernst Busch Academy of Dramatic Arts in Berlin. There she worked e.g. with Hans-Jochen Menzel, Friederike Förster, Heiki Ikkola and Nis Søgaard and graduated with honors in 2019. Since then she has been working at city theatres as well as in the independent scene. Her self-developed productions are performed at various locations throughout the German-speaking area. In addition to performing, she is enthusiastic about puppet making and has a special preference for rubber milk.
Josephine Hock is part of the Secret Dramaturgical Society.
