Peter Petkovsek


I am a theatre director and occasional dramaturg, writer, and translator. Since receiving my directing training at Columbia University in New York City, I’ve directed and created theatre in the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia.

My PhD project is a closer look at the relationship between society and nature through the lens of indigenous cosmovision and the performative or cultural practices it engenders.
