The comedian, actor, performer and theatre-maker Johannes Dullin was born in the Ruhr area in 1980. He completed his Bachelor's degree at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri in Italian-speaking Switzerland and his Master's degree at the Bern University of the Arts. Between the two educations, he lived and worked in Berlin for ten years. Since 2014 he has increasingly focused on solo works that move at the interface between theatre, performance and comedy. His 2018 play 'The best piece of this season' is so far the only piece nominated for the Swiss Theatertreffen and the Swiss Comedy Award. As a performer and actor on stage he has been seen at Hebbel am Ufer, Sophiensæle, Ballhaus Ost, Theater Neumarkt Zürich, Münchner Kammerspiele, Schaubühne Berlin and Staatstheater Mannheim, among others. In 2007 he founded the performance theatre group Banality Dreams with the Norwegian Signe Holtsmark, which he directed artistically for five years. Between 2007 and 2020, Dullin was a member of the artist collective Authentic Boys. His film 'Threesome', a collaboration between Banality Dreams and Authentic Boys, received the Förderpreis for the most outstanding directorial work at the Kurzfilmtage Winterthur in 2011. He has already lectured at the Accademia Teatro Dimitri, Bern University of the Arts, Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam and the University of Television and Film Munich.
