Matthias Witting was born in Berlin in 1952, studied education in the 70s and worked in youth work and cultural projects.
He has been a professional musician since 1979. In the years 1980 to 84 he played with the NDW band "ZeitGeist" on LPs and tours.
From 1986 Matthias acts as musical director for "Linie 1", "Ab heute heißt du Sara" and many other plays at the GRIPS Theater. The enormous success of "Linie 1" opens the doors to many domestic and foreign theaters, where he worked as musical director or composer.
For GRIPS he composed most recently the music for "Alle außer das Einhorn".
In 1999 he added directing as a further focus. Since then he has directed at various German stages. Matthias is currently on stage at GRIPS as the keyboardist for "Linie 1" as well as for "Ab heute heißt du Sara" and occasionally for the "Millibillies".
