Lilian Seuberling holds an M.A. in Theatre and Media Studies and in Education Studies from Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nuremberg, where she also studied Darstellendes Spiel. From 2010 to 2012, she took part in the interdisciplinary project The Meaning of Writing and Painting in Biography at Friedrich Alexander Universität, where she also taught in the department of Theatre and Media Studies.
Aesthetics between Performance Art and Applied Theatre and the analysis of the performativity of the subject amidst the competing priorities of culturality, historicity and sociality is a research focus for her. She examined some of these dynamics in her master’s thesis, focusing on discourses of health and disease.
Theatricality in its aesthetic and anthropological components, questions about the performativity of the body, sexuality and gender, witnessing, phenomena of resonance, as well as the use of the body of the theatrical scientist are further focus areas.
She has taken part in The Aesthetics of Applied Theatre project between December 2012 and December 2016 and has been working on a doctoral thesis about bodies and movement in therapy forms that make use of theatre as a tool with the title Embodied Relations.
From 2011 to 2015 she completed a training in Gestalt Therapy and Coaching and offers GestaltCoaching in Berlin.
Since 2009, Lilian has initiated and produced several plays, educational theatre pieces, and interactive performances at the Kunstpalais Erlangen, Fraunhofer Institute, Klinikum am Europakanal, among others.
