After finishing studies, Stephanie played main parts in various theater productions, for example at Staatstheater Kassel, Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg, Maxim Gorki Theater Berlin, and The Helmi International Puppet Theatre. She took part in various cinema, short film and television productions and sings in her band BETON. ADDICTED TO ACTING, a seven years documentary for cinema, directed by Andres Veiel, won the Berlinale Panorama Audience Award 2004. The award winning mother-daughter drama DUST ON OUR HEARTS by Hanna Doose, was based on a short treatment, the dialogues of the film are improvised in front of the running camera.

Kenyan Première

“Staub auf unseren Herzen – Dust on our Hearts” 87 mins, 2013
Director: Hanna Doose, Writer: Hanna Doose
Stars: Susanne Lothar, Stephanie Stremler, Oskar Bökelmann

DUST ON OUR HEARTS follows 30-year-old Kathi, who dreams of succeeding as an actress in Berlin. Her overbearing mother Chris works as a life coach and likes to apply her professional knowledge to analyse her daughter’s problems, at times to great humorous effect and with strong hints at Cassavettes’ legendary acting techniques. When Kathi’s father suddenly returns after a 15-year absence, she finds herself in a cross-fire between her bickering parents. To complicate matters, Kathi temporarily loses her own four-year-old son.
