Carolin Ott



Born in Lübz, Germany. Brought up in East Berlin. Moved abroad aged 17.

Carolin trained at the School of Physical Theatre London (now based in Canada), where she completed an intensive one year Lecoq course. She then continued her studies on the three year BA (Hons) Acting Course (pathway- Collaborative and Devised Theatre) at the 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 Carolin has worked on stage and screen internationally. Theatres she has worked for include: Monbijou Theater Berlin, Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Riverside Studios, Barbican, Hampstead Theatre, Old Vic New Voices at the Old Vic Tunnels, the Roundhouse, The Scoop Bankside, Theatre Delicatessen and award winning theatre companies such as Rough Fiction, DogOrange and Theatre Lab Company. Carolin has starred in various independent films, such as ‘FlySpy’ directed by BAFTA award winning director Daniel Smith, acting opposite Ophelia Lovibond and ‘Caraba’, a feature about free education, directed by Katharina Mihm. As a voice over artist she regularly records animations for the Goethe Institute and past clients include the BBC, IHG, Vodafone, PURE, Olympia, Hodder & Stoughton and Aztlan.

At the end of 2016, after living abroad for 13 years, Carolin made the decision to spend more time in her hometown Berlin to rediscover her German roots.

Performing Arts Festival Berlin

Happy to announce that I will be performing during this years Performing Arts Festival in an interactive show entitled ‘Cyborg City- die Schlacht um Troja.kon’. The basis of the show/ game Cyborg City is the creation of an urban laboratory to double existing and future life. Cyborg City audience members enter into the story of the game – from the perspective of gamers who design it. In their double role as gamer and (video) game character, they must technically and digitally upgrade their bodies and minds in order to be up to the complex quests of the future.

Premiere: Friday 18th May at 7pm, further shows: 19th, 20th May, Location: ehemaliges Stummfilmkino Delphi and then from 6th- 10th June as part of the festival, Location: Kühlhaus Berlin See you there!
