About Christoph Bahr

Christoph Bahr (*1985) was born in Wiesbaden and raised in Hallgarten/Rheingau. During a High School Exchange in 2002 he lived in a host family for about 5 months in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on the Canary Isles, Spain. During his stay he not only learned to excellently speak Spanish but also discovered the pleasure of getting involved in a foreign context and to newly experience his personality there. After graduation 2004 and Zivildienst (community service as alternative to military service) in 2005 he studied at the universities of Passau (B.A. European Studies) and Mainz (M.A. American Studies / Nothern European and Baltic Languages and Cultures). In between lay a time of work and travel in 2007 as a camp counselor for Julian Krinsky at Cabrini College in Radnor, PA.

At the universities of Passau and Mainz he learned Portuguese, Swedish and Finnish, while learning Slovenian, French and Russian through various encounters.. His urge for freedom could not be contained by his academic studies, so he enrolled in Frankfurt‘s University of Music and Performing Arts in 2009 which he left in 2013 to move to Düsseldorf. From 2013 until 2019 he was member of the repertory ensembles of Burghofbühne Dinslaken and RLT Neuss.

Since 2019 Christoph Bahr is working as freelance actor and voice actor in and around Düsseldorf and Frankfurt and from his home studio.

He is now undergoing professional training as a Multidimensional Coach with Christina H. Rüdel. The unusual yet highly effective methods of his training are helping him and his (test-) clients on the way to more personal freedom and lightness. It‘s no surprise the advantages of going this path parallelly to his occupation in acting are already showing.

Further personal interests have ever since been religion and spirituality (Judaism, Katholicism [ex-accolyte], Sikhism, New Age [Conversations with God]), art history and for a few years football stickers which he collects from street lanterns, autobahn service areas, or walls and towel dispensers in pubs. Touring with the theatre has ignited and supported this hobby and finally led to a public showing of the sticker gallery in the tourbus during his farewell party in 2016. Local colour within and beyond the German borders is continually fascinating him.

Christoph Bahr is member of BFFS (German screen actors‘ association) and Ensemble-Netzwerk (theatre network movement) as well as Mensa Germany.
