Elsa Rigmor Thiemann uttered her first cry in Düsseldorf and was already dreaming of crossing over to the French side of the Rhine.
After her training at the Ulm Theatre Academy, she took vocal and singing lessons with Anna Prucnal and the Roy Hart Theatre, followed by studies in prosody at the Théâtre National de Villeurbanne and in dubbing training with Ivana Coppola, Vincent Violette and Jean Barney in Paris.
Molière or Goethe/Brecht? Thinking and feeling in both languages, she has acted in numerous French theatre and television productions.
She recites poetry, creates bilingual plays, and expresses her love of translating through her work as an interpreter at the Opéra de Lyon, or by translating a cinema script inspired by Paul Claudel.
A kind of modern Lorelei, her voice resonates from one bank to another, like building a bridge over the Rhine.
