The name “Kopf hoch“ (meaning "cheer up") stands as a symbol and should remind us with a caring hand on our shoulder to push through the though times and hold our head up high to see the sun behind the mountain tops.

team & collaborating artists


Kopf hoch is an association founded by Simon Mayer that has been growing during the last few years. Apart from the working structure it offers it stands for a group of collaborating artists, technicians and cultural workers who have been working more or less constantly with Simon Mayer. Together with the production manager Sophie Schmeiser the goal besides creation and touring is to actively shape the scene in Vienna and Austria and bring home new ways of thinking and working from abroad. We want to enable wholesome working conditions and share our approaches with others.
