In the 2012/13 season she played roles including Eve in Kleist’s ‘Der zerbrochne Krug’, Bastian Kraft’s first production on the main stage at Thalia. She worked with the Estonian directing duo Ojasoo & Semper for the second time in 2013/14. For the opening of the 2014/15 season she can be seen as Juliet in Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’, under the direction of Jette Steckel.
Birte Schnöink took up her first long-term appointment at Thalia during the 2009/2010 season.
In 2014 she was awarded the Boy Gobert Prize for young, emerging Hamburg talent. The panel explained their decision, saying that the secret to her art was the great emotional depth that she endows her characters with, without needing to rely on grand gestures. ‘Birte Schnöink’s performances seem rational and uncomplicated, but in reality they are highly concentrated. That’s how she creates complex characters: vulnerable and fierce, tender, but full of inner strength, touching, but never melodramatic.’
