I am theatremaker, director and visual artist as well as builder and initiator of artist-in-residencies. From 2004 until 2014 I was a core member of the theatregroup PeerGrouP. I am trained as master in theatre practices and have a bachelor in environmental enginering. I am an artist with a network of international artists, scholars, writers and organisations.

Currently I am working on a broad range of things and that is why I run this platform for people and landscape called Landscape Labs.

International working experience:

Russia, Denmark, UK, USA, Poland, Czech Rep., Germany, Romenia, Sweden and Belgium.

Statement: “I have a keen eye for conventions, which I love to shake up, not to break down but strenghten by doing so.”

I think every project should also be a school, a library and a workshop. And I treat every site as a crime-scene, excavation and a theatre.
