Joachim Rümke fell in love with animation early in his life. Encountering theater from a young age on, he developed an interest in narrative arts. Ever since, he has been researching different applications of animation in different art forms, especially the performing arts.

For Joachim, there’s a clear connection between theater and animation, as they are both abstract and narrative art forms. However, while theater is dependent on the here and now and interactions with the audience, animation can be repeated eternally.

By directing his attention to creating new media arts, Joachim has given his animations an interactive dimension that allows WERC to present impressive performances with interesting narratives.
