BIOGRAPHY

Sarah Viktoria Frick

Sarah Viktoria Frick, born in Chur in 1982, studied acting at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Zurich. After her studies, she made first guest appearances at the Theater Neumarkt in Zurich (Biljana Srbljanović’s Familiengeschichten Belgrad) and at the Theatre Bern (Franz Xaver Kroetz' Der Drang) before becoming an ensemble member at the Schauspiel Essen. Here, she made her debut as Puck in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in David Bösch’s production. During the next three years of her engagement, the young stage director cast her in many of his productions at the Schauspiel Essen; she appeared as Lena in Georg Büchner’s Leonce und Lena (2005), Desiree in Werner Schwab’s Volksvernichtung oder Meine Leber ist sinnlos (2006), the title roles in Heinrich von Kleist’s Das Käthchen von Heilbronn (2006) and in Sophocles' Antigone (2008), Julie in Ferenc Molnár’s Liliom (2007) and Viola in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (2009). In 2009 Matthias Hartmann engaged her at Vienna’s Burgtheater, where she has remained an ensemble member ever since. She has worked with stage directors like Alvis Hermanis (Tracy Letts’ August: Osage County, 2009), Niklaus Helbling (Sibylle Berg’s Nur Nachts, world premiere, 2010), Michael Thalheimer (Bertolt Brecht’s Die heilige Johanna der Schlachthöfe, 2010) and Stefan Kimmig (Ewald Palmetshofer's räuber. schuldengenital, world premiere, 2012).
At the Burgtheater, she and David Bösch continued their successful collaboration; she received the renowned Nestroy Theatre Prize no less than twice: in 2010 in the Best Young Actress category for her performance in Adam Geist by Dea Loher, and in 2011 as Best Actress for her portrayal of Beppi in Franz Xaver Kroetz’ Stallerhof. Most recently, she appeared as Salome Pockerl in Bösch’s production of Johann Nestroy’s Talisman at the Akademietheater.
