About Matthias Schoch

Matthias Schoch completed his acting training at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK, Bachelor of Arts 2011). Even before his apprenticeship, he played the leading role in Christoph Schaub's "Jeune Homme". In 2008 he received the Study Prize of Migros Kulturprozent, and in 2013 the Award of the Armin Ziegler Foundation.

From 2011 to 2014 he was a permanent member of the ensemble at the Theater Orchester Biel Solothurn (TOBS), then freelance in Film, TV and theaters. The title roles in "Don Carlos", "Amadeus" and "Jedermann" deserve special mention, as well as the invitation to the «Schweizer Theatertreffen» with the play "Before I Speak I Have Something to Say" (2017 Merker/Schoch). On stage he worked with, among others, Katharina Rupp, Deborah Epstein, Cilli Drexel, Janusz Kica, Robin Telfer and Max Merker, and in film with Christoph Schaub, Natascha Beller, Nick Hilber and Carmen Stadler, among others.

In addition to his acting work, he was the artistic director of the open-air spectacle "Zirkus Chnopf" from 2014-2018, which received the Cultural Award of the City of Zurich, and is co-founder of the art facility "Zirkusquartier Zürich".
