Marie & Sophie Marie & Sophie Marie & Sophie Marie & Sophie Marie & Sophie

"Marie & Sophie" is a homage to one of the greatest scientists in history: Marie Skłodowska-Curie. Her story is connected to the story of Sophie in the present. She bares the dream of becoming a great dancer. They both tell through their life's story, that it is always worth to fight for your dreams. The musical has great songs and ballads, cool dances and beautiful costumes!

The musical is a cooperation between the "Marie-Curie-Gymnasium" in Dallgow-Döberitz near Berlin and is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the "Verband deutscher Musikschulen" (Association of German Music Schools).

Additional Performances: On the 7th of November in 2017 we performed the musical in the "Werkstatt der Kulturen" in Berlin Neukölln. The "Deutsch-Polnische Gesellschaft" invited us to show an extra performance on the occasion of the 150th birthday of Marie Skłodowska-Curie.

We borrow the historical costumes here: Kostümkollektiv Kreuzberg e.V.

It was a pleasure for me to work with my students from Dallgow-Döberitz and Falkensee on the great project "Marie & Sophie". Despite difficulties we could celebrate a wonderful premiere on the 18th of June in 2016 that I will always remember as one of my greatest moments as author. The musical has been revised with new songs, scenes and dances for 2017 and we hope that we can perform it in Paris one day! :-)
