Live and act

Teitge had played theater since the beginning of the Weimar Republic , but only rarely got a permanent engagement. At the beginning of the 1930s he can be traced back to several seasons as an actor and director at the Saxon cultural stage in Chemnitz. From 1933 he was again without a permanent engagement and then went to Berlin, where Teitge played small roles in films. Teitge remained loyal to the noble batch in front of the camera for a lifetime, and in four decades he was seen in front of the camera as a director (in his screen debut Leichte Kavallerie ), organ grinder, ship passenger, worker, policeman, servant, civil servant, clergyman, artist , Notary, gardener and even as a Gestapo man. Teitge, who stayed in his hometown Potsdam after the Second World War, has since appeared in an abundance of DEFA productions such as DFF TV films and, right up to his death, appeared in front of the camera with roles of old men.
