During her drama studies at the Otto Falckenberg School of the Performing Arts which she completed in 2007, she already performed at the Münchner Kammerspiele. In 2008 and 2009 engagements brought her to the Theater Augsburg. Her most important film productions include her role as “Kati” in Marcus H.

With the play “They shoot horses, don't they?” (directed by Susanne Kennedy, 2011) Anna Maria Sturm returned as guest actress to the Münchner Kammerspiele. Here she performed as “Helena” in “Atropa. Die Rache des Friedens. Der Fall Trojas” (directed by Stephan Kimmig, 2011), as “Clementine” in “Fegefeuer in Ingolstadt” (directed by Susanne Kennedy, 2013) and as “die Rote” in “O Death” (directed by Jan Decorte, 2013).
