German-English Performance

“Following in the great tradition of German cabaret, Franziska’s poetic twist is enchanting and thought provoking. She has great stage presence and entices you into her unique world of entertainment. This brave lady seeks your attention and you will be rewarded with a unique performance that will delight both hearts and minds.”

Performance and Lecture about my work

“‘Charisma’ is what Franziska Ruprecht possesses. Her approach to performance is marked by a willingness to push language to its limits. Rather than accepting the boundaries of one genre, she questions its possibilities. In Detroit, where I knew her as a student at Wayne State University, she was the unquestioned center of activity for an entire group of multimedia performers that was brought together by her presence. A similar phenomenon happened with her poetry show in Germany, Dichtwerkvariété, where she presented and performed with artists working in different genres.”

Barrett Watten, Professor, Department of English, Wayne State University Detroit, USA

Gigs as a Creative Writing student in the USA

Performance, vocals, rap, and lyrics as Kitka Laika Rocket “The KINOKS” (abstract hip-hop) with Ivan Eyeexam aka Doc Waffles and Max Praxis aka Brandon Walley, for instance at Zeitgeist Theater Detroit. Performances with the collective coLLide (founding member) at Scarab Club. Numerous successful Poetry Slams and Open Mikes in Detroit & Michigan. I won the very first slam I took part in in Ann Arbour, Michigan.
