Alexander Khuon was born in Freiburg in 1979 and received his acting training at Leipzig’s University of Music and Theatre ‘Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’ from 1999 to 2001. Already during his studies he performed at the Dresden State Theatre and in 2002 began acting at the Cologne Playhouse. Since the 2004/2005 season Khuon has been a member of the Deutsches Theater ensemble, where he’s worked with well-known directors such as Nicolas Stemann, Michael Thalheimer, Dimiter Gotscheff and Jürgen Gosch. At the DT, Alexander Khuon currently plays Boris Nikolaevich Chepurnoy in Maxim Gorky’s Children of the Sun and Roland Boulanger in Yasmina Reza’s How You Talk the Game (both staged by Stephan Kimmig). He also appears in Christian Petzold’s production of The Lonely Way by Arthur Schnitzler, as well as in part 1 of Frank Abt’s Stories from Here. Khuon performs in two productions by the late Jürgen Gosch, as well: Roland Schimmelpfennig’s Idomeneus and Chekhov’s The Seagull – which was invited to Berlin’s Theatertreffen festival in 2009. Alexander Khuon was awarded the Gertrud Eysoldt Ring in 2011, in recognition of his outstanding performance as the writer Trigorin in The Seagull.
