I am a set and costume designer based in London, working internationally. In 2016 I graduated with a First Class BA (Hons) in Design for Performance from the University of Fine Arts Budapest (Hungary).

My second year design was exhibited at the Prague Quadrennial 2015. Alongside my studies I was a trainee assistant of the workshop leader at the Set Building and Costume Making Workshops of the Hungarian State Opera House. My recent theatre credits include the set design for Kleist: The Broken Jug for the Hungarian Zenthe Theatre and Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the Szigligeti Theatre in Romania. I am now a stage designer because I want to share my experience in theatre – and how much it can offer – with others. I’m very interested in stories that are inspired by our personal experiences and help us understand each other on a deeper level.

The beautiful layers of this story are just as complex as the human mind.

And just like in the human mind, these layers are mixed together, inseparably. The daylight of civilization, when it’s the dictature of Theseus and we are repressed by rules and norms is just as much present as the night when the libertine world of Oberon and Titania, instincts, emotions and hidden desires come forward. We’re surrounded with a structure, cubicles, that endlessly repeat themselves, but at the same time the nature’s overwhelming presence is unquestionable. We are walking in deep mud and drizzling rain pours on us. During the day we are meant to fit in the cubicles, just like everyone else. At night chaos reaches us, the cubicles become permeable, we lose ourselves in the nature and deep into the darkness of our minds. We are all looking for the same thing, how can we still be so lonely and confused?
