He received most important national rewards, including the highest recognition of the Republic of Slovenia for achievements in art, the Prešeren Fund Award. He is also the winner of several prestigious choreographic awards abroad, for a set of duets created with a dancer and choreographer Rosana Hribar.

The basic motto of the workshop is: The body speaks, it needs to be listened. I come from three basic body characters: observer, follower and leader. The next level is ‘gibberish’, a made-up language, used as acting technique or a tool for monitoring one’s own body in different emotional situations and conditions that enable us to hear movement, experience the body, see the moment. Once the choreography begins to sound, the spectator is no longer looking at it, but starts seeing it.
