voice artist

Monika Maria Herzing

Welcome to my website!
Nice of you to visit me here.

I studied my craft – acting, dance and choreography – in England and the USA.

I have also lived and worked in New Zealand, France, Liechtenstein and Austria.

In my home country of Germany, I have been allowed to give my best in various municipal, private and open-air theatres, as well as in the independent scene and in my own productions since 1995. I also take part in various TV and film productions.

Munich has been my home since 2008. I live here with my family. I enjoy the surrounding nature and the proximity to the mountains.

Reading against oblivion

With my reading from “Wie man sich bettet” by Eva Leidmann, I am once again pleased to make a small contribution to the Germany-wide historical reading. It takes place in remembrance of the book burning by the National Socialists in 1933, who threw the works of ostracised authors into the fire. I am very grateful and proud to be taking part again on 10 May 2024 with my reading on the historic Odeonsplatz in Munich. As a reminder that this must never happen again in Germany!!!
