In 2014, the annual critics’ survey of Theater heute selected him as emerging actor of the year. With Yael Ronen’s ensemble work “The Situation”, he was invited to the Berlin Theatertreffen in 2016. His first text for the theatre, “Die Konsistenz der Wirklichkeit” was premiered at the Bavarian Theatre Academy August Everding in 2017, directed by himself. At the Theatertreffen der Schauspielstudierenden, this work received both the main jury award and the audience award. Beside his work as an actor, director and dramatist, Dimitrij Schaad writes screenplays together with his brother Alex Schaad. In 2016, their film “Invention of Trust” won the Students’ Oscar.
