About Birgit Stauber

Birgit Stauber spends her childhood mostly in the meadows and the woods with tree climbing, mushroom quests and flower picking. The hoyden is disguised as Robin Hood, her horse is a glaring red BMX. She has her stage debut at an age of five, and she is nine years old when she watches the musical Cats. Two years later she directs and choreographes Cats in a gymnastic club, as a matter of fact she also plays and dances in it herself.
After an intense dance education she quits her studies in medicine in favor to studying musical theater. 1996 she writes, directs & choreographes her first musical show Tell me Why, in the same year she has her television debut as an actress playing a lead role.
She finishes her studies for directing musical theater with her musical show t.o.r.n (writer, director, choreographer), wins the Rising Movie Talent Award for Acting and goes to Los Angeles to study acting with Eric Morris.

Birgit Stauber has danced in dance companies, sung in musicals and played different parts in film, televison and commercials - with her lead role "Rabe" in the action comedy series "Wild Angels" she becomes known to the European audience. Her enthusiasm for musical films is enhanced with the Bollywood boom of the last years, 2005 she starts studying Kathak (Classical Indian dance). In the same year she launches her own film production company Leyendas (spanish name for legends) in Berlin.
Her love for storytelling is shown in her screenplays: the teenie love story Freak City (hearing Mika wants his ex-girlfriend back and falls in love with deaf Lea) wins a Wim Wenders scholarships, the film has its festival premiere at Hof in 2020.

Her artistic work is shown in the curiosity for and the depth in her characters, courage for vulnerability, sensitivity for rhythm, joy in touching, surprising and entertaining the audience - as well as deep love for life itself.

Winner of many film awards. Member of Equity UK, Austrian Film Academy and BVR.
