Carolin Ott is an actress, voiceover artist and theatre maker. Born November 1985 in Lübz, Germany. Brought up in East-Berlin. Moved abroad, by herself, aged 17.
Carolin trained at the School of Physical Theatre London (now based in Canada), where she completed an intensive one year course based on the methods of Jacques Lecoq. She then continued her studies on the three year BA (Hons) Acting Course (pathway – Collaborative and Devised Theatre) at the renowned Royal Central School of Speech and Drama before enjoying a more classical, postgraduate acting training at Drama Studio London. The marriage of all has given her a unique and rounded approach to her work.
Since graduating from Drama School in 2010 she has worked on stage and screen internationally. Her work includes collaborations with award winning theatre companies such as: Theaterlabor Bielefeld (DE), Teatr A Part (PL), Frantic Assembly (UK), Panzerkreuzer Rotkäppchen (DE), Theatre Lab Company (UK/ GR), Plavo Pozorište (SRB), feedback theatre (UK) and Association Arsène (FR). Carolin believes that theatre is and can be for everyone and is particularly interested in socio-political subjects, ensemble work, contemporary literature, combining different mediums to create stories and identity.
As a voice over artist she regularly records animations for the Goethe Institute and past clients include the BBC, IHG, Scholl, YouTube, Vodafone, PURE, Olympia, Hodder & Stoughton, EasyJet, KPMG, Comedy Central News and many more.
Carolin also facilitates theatre workshops for children and teenagers (London Workshop Company, Spiel-Schau, Platypus Theater) and offers individual and group seminars on personal impact, presentation styles, presence and voice at work (clients: Unilever, E.on, Deutsche Bank, Vodafone).
At the beginning of 2017 – after living abroad for 13 years – Carolin made the decision to pack two suitcases and move back to her hometown Berlin.
She is an ensemble member of theatre collective Monstress Mess.

I am so, so proud to be working with the international ensemble Das Letzte Kleinod (The Last Treasure), who develops performances about places and their stories. An unoccupied island, a cold storage house or a harbour quay become the sites of unusual theatre performances. Das Letzte Kleinod continues to present their work in Germany, Europe and overseas. We will perform ‘Passenger Processing’ at Columbusbahnhof in Bremerhaven from 20th October – 14th November at 7pm. More info and tickets HERE.

Two lovely projects I recorded from my home studio recently: a TV commercial for FitBit and a Podcast recording of “Puss in Boots” by the Grimm Brothers. The podcast is very dear to my heart – it developed during professional training with the Sprecherdatei and is called “Das Märchensofa”. You will be able to listen to a different recording every day in the lead up to Christmas. I will share both recordings with you as soon as they are on air.
