About Ann Ayano

Ann Ayano, a Japanese actress, was born and raised in Tokyo. Since its premiere on April 30, 2022, she has been performing in the stage adaptation of Mieko Kawakami's novel, "Breasts and Eggs," under the direction of Christopher Rüping at the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, Germany. She has appeared in the Netflix series, "Hello," and played the lead role in the sci-fi film, "Immortal." She also collaborates with some of Japan's most renowned directors such as Hideki Noda and Tetsu Taoshita, as well as conductors like Michiyoshi Inoue and Alexander Lazarev.
Ann Ayano graduated from the Nihon University College of Art, specializing in Theater Acting. She further honed her acting skills at Actor's Space Berlin and Chubbuck Studio Berlin. Her special talents include ballet, contemporary dance, opera and kickboxing. Her hobbies are reading and spending time with her dogs.
In 2015, she relocated to Berlin and was chosen as the lead actress in the play, "The Fall of Babel," written by Yoko Tawada and directed by Matthias Rebstock, at the Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele. She also took on the French narrator role in the Japanese premiere of "Stravinsky: Perséphone," a performance that has been released on CD. She is currently acting as a producer for the project, "Enoch Arden," an action film she produced herself which has garnered more than 80,000 views on YouTube.
She currently resides in both Berlin and Tokyo, and leverages her language skills in her native Japanese, as well as in foreign languages such as German, French and English for international film appearances.
