Corinne Maier lives and works as a director and performer in Basel and Berlin. She studied cultural sciences and aesthetic practice from 2003 to 2009 in Hildesheim. She worked as a dramaturge, co-founded the theater collective magic garden («Diagnose Diagnose» (2011), «Questioning» (2014) and «Souvenir» (2015)) and was performing her Lecture Performances («Heideggers-auf-der-Bühne-sein» (2009)), («Selberdenken, Setzen!» (2011, Audience Award of the Treibstoff Theatertage Basel 2011)) on stage herself. In 2012 she began directing and since then directed «Past Is Present» (2013) and «Like A Prayer» (2015). Both projects have been touring at several venues and festivals in Europe and India. Most recently she developed «Children of Tomorrow» (2017) at the Volkstheater Munich together with author Tina Müller.
Extensive expeditions and research are the beginning of her often documentary theater work.
