Sabine Haupt, born in Frankfurt am Main, studied acting at the Academy of Music and Theatre in Hanover. Her first regular engagement took her to the Bielefeld Theatre from 1994 to 1997. In 1997 she moved on to the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, where she worked with directors Martin Kušej (Horváth’s Geschichten aus dem Wiener Wald), Sven-Eric Bechtolf (Brecht’s Baal) and Jürgen Flimm (Shakespeare’s As You Like It), among others. In 1999/2000 she was hired by Vienna’s Burgtheater, where she is still an ensemble member today. There, she has been featured in many of Andrea Breth’s productions; thus she played Jilly in Edward Bond’s The Sea, Sona in Albert Ostermaier’s Letzter Aufruf, Mae in Tennessee Williams’ Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and the title role in Lessing’s Minna von Barnhelm. Guest engagements also took her to the Zurich and Bochum Theatres. At the Burgtheater, she worked again with Martin Kušej (Grillparzer’s König Ottokars Glück und Ende, co-production with the Salzburg Festival, 2005; Horváth’s Glaube, Liebe, Hoffnung) and Sven-Eric Bechtolf (Büchner’s Leonce und Lena; Schnitzler’s Reigen). Furthermore, she appeared in productions by Stefan Kimmig (Grillparzer’s Das goldene Vlies; Shakespeare’s Wars of the Roses), Stefan Bachmann (Botho Strauß’ Trilogie des Wiedersehens; Wajdi Mouawad’s Incendies) and Joachim Schlömer (Hofmannsthal’s Elektra; Antonin Artaud’s Le Pèse-nerfs). She can currently be seen in Antú Romero Nunes’ production of Isabel Allende’s The House of the Spirits and in Matthias Hartmann’s production of Tolstoy’s War and Peace.
