Philipp Poisel was born in Ludwigsburg in 1983. He was already making music as a child: he played the drums and the guitar, experimented with his own compositions and sang in a choir. In 2006 he met Herbert Grönemeyer’s producer Frank Pilsl. Herbert Grönemeyer signed Poisel onto his record company „Grönland“ in 2007 and produced his debut album Wo fängt dein Himmel an?. Poisel went on tour as the support act for Ane Brun, Maria Mena, Suzanne Vega and Herbert Grönemeyer. His second studio album Bis nach Toulouse was released in 2010 and made eighth place in the German album charts. In 2011, he contributed his ballad Eiserner Steg to the soundtrack of Matthias Schweighöfer’s film What a Man. His live album project Seerosenteich, on which he interpreted 19 of his songs in new arrangements with string quartet and piano accompaniment, came out in 2012 and immediately rose to first place on the German album charts. His single Wolke 7 also came out in 2012 and held fifth place among the top ten for five weeks. Not long thereafter, Wie soll ein Mensch das ertragen? celebrated the same success. Since then, there’s no imagining the singer-songwriter scene without Philipp Poisel; his performances fill concert halls and stadiums. His exceptional lyrics and the poetry of his songs caught the attention of Armin Petras, who invited him to perform at Schauspielhaus Stuttgart several times. The desire to collaborate was born. In Love You, Dragonfly Philipp Poisel is on stage as an actor and musician with his own songs – newly interpreted for the production – and musical renderings of Fritz Kater’s texts. With this production he will come to the Deutsches Theater Berlin for the Autorentheatertage 2019.
