Born in Berlin, studied acting at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg. In 1990, she received the solo award as the best graduate at the national competition of the German drama schools.
After jobs at the Thalia Theater in Hamburg, Stadttheater in Gießen, Landesbühne Sachsen and Freilichtspiele in Schwäbisch Hall, she has settled in Dresden and works a freelance actress.
Important roles were, among others, Katie in ‘Katie of Heilbronn’ (‘Das Käthchen von Heilbronn’), Ophelia in ‘Hamlet’, Simone Evard in ‘Jean Paul Marat’, Lady III in ‘The visit’ (‘Besuch der alten Dame’), Jocasta in Oedipus and Ranjewskaja in ‘The Cherry Orchard’.
Since 2005 she makes her own productions, like ‘Das Jagdgewehr’, a scenic story by Yasoushi Inoue, ‘Bomben ins Bewusstsein’ – scenes of German terror and ‘Transitraum’ – a German-German search for traces.
Since 2012, she is part of the collective Theater La Lune, now missingdots. In her artistic work, Julia Amme is looking for an interdisciplinary confrontation with acting, dance, performance and fine arts. She constantly educates herself further through workshops in the field of performance and dance theater: Ziele & Carter (UK), Francesco Kiais (GRC), Dagmar L. Clausnitzer – Smith (DEU), Marcel Sparman (DEU), Derevo (DEU – RUS), Tomi Paasonen (FIN).
