THE SHORT BIOGRAPHY

His films - an unique mixture of essay and documentation - can regularly be watched on festivals.

Before studying, Höffken worked in an advertising agency and wrote cultural criticism. From 2007 he was assistant director at different theatres, such as Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus, Rheinoper and Deutsche Oper Berlin. At the off-theatres of Berlin and Northrhine-Westphalia he made his own stage experiences. He often performed at the Beatplantation in Oberhausen, at Düsseldorf Young Theatre and ZAKK.
