Sonja Kammerlander

Sonja Kammerlander was born on 3 December 1977 in Bolzano. In 2004 she took her degree in German Philology at the Leopold-Franzens-University in Innsbruck. Until 2009 she taught German and at various lower secondary schools in Alto Adige. She’s been teaching German at the Technical Economic School “Raetia” in Ortisei for three years now. She lives in St.Christina in Val Gardena with her partner.
Together with her colleague Maria Teresa Mussner, Sonja Kammerlander attended a teacher training course in August 2011 about writing and putting into scene improvised theatre plays with a class of students held by the professional actress and tutor Katja Lechthaler. Thus their wish arose to put into practice the acquired knowledge. At that time, however, the theme still had to be defined. After an intense exchange of the acquired experiences with their colleague Ilaria Noci, their ideas were joined and thanks to their enthusiastic students and the precious help of Katja Lechthaler, a striking scene on the topic “Shoah – Back to life” was born.
