Director, Company Krisztian Gergye
Krisztián Gergye was born in Hungary and started his stage career as a Javanese dancer. He spent a year in Java in 1998 where he studied ancient Indonesian dance as a Darmassiswa scholar.

As a dancer and choreographer, he has been a guest to nearly all Hungarian dance groups and performed in all contemporary dance thatres and venues. He has been awarded several prizes both for his creations and as a performer. Over the past years his project-theatre company has performed in several countries including Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, UK and the USA...
