PERFORMER | ACTOR | WRITER

Sascha’s dramatic repertory as a multilingual actress covers the classical and the modern literature as well as the tragedy and the comedy. 

Parallel to music and acting she has devoted herself in recent years increasingly to writing and interdisciplinary performance.

In 2005 she staged a version of a narration around Saint-Saëns’s “Le carnaval des animaux” with actors, dancers, acrobats and a chamber orchestra. The same year started a row of several collaborations with contemporary dancers, as dramaturg, artistic adviser or director.
Her idiosyncratic dance theater piece “Mi Frida” on Mexican icon Frida Kahlo is touring since 2014. Her creation of the concert & visuals performance on the enigmatic character of Andersen’s snow queen “The Chant of the Snowqueen” on stage since 2016.

In the field of cinema she has played in recent years in Hannah Arendt by Margarete von Trotta, Cosmodrama by Philippe Fernandez and Fieber by Elfi Mikesch.

"(MI FRIDA) Always changing, always new, always surprising. Who is the dancer, who is the singer, who is the actress? The boundaries are blurred. (...) Sometimes there is also a tinge of absurdity. (...) At the end the songs are sad, the fight becomes a dance of death. And yet we see no victim, but both a strong and desperate woman. Even in these terms, the performance is incontestable. Strong." - Trierischer Volksfreund (D)

"No doubt, Sascha Ley is a genuine multi-talent; after all, she is not just a songwriter, composer and interpreter but works as an actress and a director as well… What remains unchanged, however, is the seductive mood, the poetry of it all, which has become Sascha’s trademark." - Le Quotidien (L)

"A brilliant actress." - Sonntagsnachrichten (D)

"The powerful Sascha Ley." - Deutschlandfunk (D)

"Divine … simply captivating, enchanting, marvelously vulgar and full of magic charisma." - Süddeutsche Zeitung (D)
