Nic Schmitt

Since 2004, the two trained theater scholars, performers and directors have been working as “Schmitt & Schulz – Team for Contemporary Theater Forms” on joint projects with subsequent guest performances and festival appearances.

In October 2007 they founded the pad as a non-profit association.
Nic Schmitt previously gained experience in theater organization at the Rüsselsheimer Kultursommer. Peter Schulz was managing director of the theater committee for several years at the Mainz university stage.
