His Work.

Marcus' work has been featured in ZEIT ONLINE, Forbes and Spiegel Online. His performances feel and look like keynotes. They have the aura of a business-world spiraling out of control. They have been specifically created for festival and conference stages, which is why Marcus calls them performance hacks.

They confront, polarize and excite.
