In the early times he directed several amateur theatre performances and worked as an art program organizer, theatre critic, workshop facilitator and actor. Through the university years he got a determinative impulse from the field of pedagogy and social science what gave him a new perspective. Nowadays he believes the theatre is one of the most powerful tool to change society and to create a more democratic world formed by conscious citizens.

He is interested in politics and the idea how to study it by using the method of applied and participatory theatre. How can theatre phrase public affairs and how can the participants find solutions to them? How can they change their relationships to each other and their social environment? He is searching those performative situations that can create a forum where the participators can discuss and encounter arguments by the theatre scene. Most of the projects he creates are experiments based on this methodology what is always applied to the appointed theme. He works on a theatre game about the revolution and titled to ProTest and he created the Democratic Playground dramatic parliament simulator.
