To me, art is the ability to assimilate particles from life or from one’s inner self and while releasing them trigger emotions in the vis-á-vis. I very much look forward to the Orpheus in the Underworld adventure, to working with a great team, and to re-launching the theatre adventure in Bad Hall, which is still unknown to me.

After that, he moved to Venice to work as a stage and costume designer. Currently, the artist lives and works in Vienna, where he successfully created the set design for Baal (Cerhá) and Woyzek 2.0 (productions at Neue Oper Wien). Over the course of his career, he has worked in Italy (Festival della Valle d’Itria), Paris (Chátelet), Germany, Switzerland, and England (Kings Place and Southbank Centre).
