About Me

I am a theatre director, originally from Slovenia where I got to direct some very cool puppet shows. I trained professionally as a theatre director both in Slovenia at the National Academy for Theatre, Film, Radio and Television (AGRFT) and at the prestigious National Theatre School in Montreal, Canada.

What type of puppetry is my favourite...
I adore bunraku style puppets, they are so agile and great to use in very dynamic shows.

What I'm most proud of...
It is very rare that a new state of the art theatre is being built, and I am very proud of having the honour to direct an inaugural puppetry show at a newly built professional repertory puppetry dedicated theatre venue in Maribor, Slovenia. This beautiful newly built theatre presents more than 350 puppet shows per year. It is located by a river in a renovated monastery from 12th century which has been turned into state of the art facility with three venues.
