After studying musicology and elementary musical education I wanted to break out of the art sector and try out something entirely different. I ended up working as a social education worker. During this time,I gained a lot of experience in dealing with people, especially kids and young adults, and their various needs. However, the ever-present desire to impart art and culture to the youth became strong again. This led me to start working in a theatre. Here I am able to incorporate what I have learned in my past work experiences and my knowledge about what educators need to adequately convey theatre to young people. My goal/focus is to prepare kids and young adults, in the context of various communication formats in schools, so that they can perceive theatre as a holistic experience that has to do with them, their issues and their reality of life.
