Mark Roemisch

Visiting Lecturer

Ludwig-Maximilians-University LMU; Staatlich gen. Schauspielstudio Gmelin (Conservatory for Dramatic Arts)

Specializes in contemporary German theater, post dramatic theater and contemporary German culture.  


I specialize in contemporary German theater, post dramatic theater and contemporary German culture.  As a conservatory trained actor I performed for many years all over Germany in film, television and theaters up to Broadway equivalent (Staatstheater).

Before joining Wellesley College, I taught in several institutions, including Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and New England Conservatory of Music. I am committed to seeking out new and enhanced pedagogical approaches, including the implication of theater practical methods in the classroom.  Most recently I co-developed and performed a series of short, traditional German speaking puppet theatre shows for beginning and advanced German students at Harvard University.   

For over a decade, I extend my exploration of the human condition from the theater to the intersection of acting and photography as a visual artist.

My most recent project involves a series of self-portraits in collaboration with personal narratives of strangers, incorporating a loved one in their lives.

My work has won several awards and has been exhibited internationally.

I teach all levels of German language and am very excited to offer an advanced class “language through theater” in spring.

To stay balanced, I love to travel and discover different cultures, practice yoga and Tai Chi, and enjoy cooking and eating good food.
