Hedi Schoop

Hedi Schoop was a Swiss-born German dancer, cabaret artist and painter. From 1929 to 1933, she appeared in Berlin in the cabarets Die Tingel-Tangel-Theater, she emigrated with her first husband, Friedrich Hollaender, to California, where she turned to pottery. She founded a factory where ceramics based on her designs were produced from 1940 to 1958. Hedwig "Hedi" Schoop was born in Zürich on 3 April 1906, the daughter of Friedrich Maximilian Schoop and Emma Olga Schoop, née Böppli, her grandfather Ulrich Schoop was a lecturer at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zürich. Her father was a journalist, including for the Zürcher Post, president of the Grand Hotel Dolder; the family lived at the Zürichberg, where the hotel was located. Schoop was the third of four children, the first being the painter Max Schoop, the second the dancer Trudi Schoop, the youngest the composer Paul Schoop; the parents nurtured the artistic interests of their children. Trudi and Hedi received drama instruction. Schoop studied sculpture, architecture and fashion design at the Kunstgewerbeschule Wien and the Reimann School in Berlin.

She learned dancing from her sister who opened a dance school in Zürich in 1924. When Werner Finck and Hans Deppe founded the cabaret Die Katakombe in Berlin on 16 October 1929, the ensemble included the actor Theo Lingen, the dancers Trudi and Hedi Schoop, the artist Erich Ohser. Hedi Schoop appeared in parody pantomime, sometimes as a grotesque duo with her sister; when the cabaret dissolved in 1930, Schoop turned to Friedrich Hollaender's Tingel-Tangel-Theater, which opened on 7 January 1931. A guest of their first program was Marlene Dietrich, who had become famous singing Hollaender's songs, including "Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt"; the December 1931 show Allez-Hopp! was reviewed by Alfred Polgar in Die Weltbühne, who wrote about her ability to present with a "trinity" of temperament and grace, lively physical humour and biting parody. In 1932, Hollaender and Schoop married. Hollaender left the cabaret in January 1933, due to the Nazi regime, which closed it in 1935; the couple emigrated via Paris to the United States, where Hollaender had a contract for three months with 20th Century Fox.

They lived in Hollywood and in Hollywood Hills. They tried to run a cabaret in English, Tingel-Tangel-Theater, beginning on 3 May 1934 with a program Allez-Hopp! based on the former show. It was well attended, but the attendance began to decline; when Hollaender received a contract with RKO to produce a Western and compose the film score for it, he closed the cabaret. From 1935, Schoop turned to artistic work, she first dressed them. When they were displayed by Barker Bros. she was advised to turn to more durable materials and began to produce ceramics. In 1940, she opened Hedi Schoop Art Creations. Schoop created ceramics such as flower pots and candle holders. Figures were rural people in national costumes, in simple design which carried coloring, she created bowls and lamps, among other items, sometimes in series aimed at collectors. Schoop kept the designing for herself. In the late 1940s, the company produced more than 30,000 pieces, she employed other foreigners, including the journalist Ferdinand Kahn, the actor Ernő Verebes, the artist Sylvester Schäffer, the dancer Gitta Wallerstein, the actress Illa Rhoden and the cabaret artist Trude Berliner.

In 1943, Schoop married Ernő Verebes. They had Tony Verebes, in 1946, who became a photographer; the couple lived in Van Nuys. In 1974, Schoop illustrated a book by her sister Trudi, Won’t you join the dance? Schoop died in Van Nuys on 14 or 15 April 1995. Chaiklin, Sharon. Garraty, John A.. Schoop, Trudi.
