In her works Mareike coins the term Physical Illusion - the physical illusion, the magical gray area, in which the familiar shifts by the touch of impossibility.  This gives rise to an aesthetic that is related to magic and yet points beyond it in its content. 

Mareike developed her own stage programs early on before fully dedicating herself to Physical Theatre. This was followed by studies in Physical Theatre in Berlin. In further education at Dock11 Berlin, as well as the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in Israel, Mareike intensified both her dance and choreographic knowledge.

In 2017 Mareike founded the multiple award-winning inback theater company. As an independent freelance artist Mareike tours internationally (Europe, Asia, USA) with her own pieces.

Since the 2020 collaboration with Theater o.N., Mareike's desire to explore political issues in theater and make a mark has been growing.
