It was in 1985 that I first had the inspiration to start my own theatre, at the time I was working in the national theatres of Austria, Germany and Switzerland, where I was guided by the great artists and teachers Abby Kitzel, Niki Wolcz and David Esrig through a rich experience of the fundamental perspectives of theatre.
But now I wanted to brake free of the traditional art of theatre, to find a new way to express the mistrial through the performing arts, in a way that it can be accessible to the audiences of today.

To take inspiration from around the world including the Sacred theatre of India, Japanese theatre arts of Noh, Kabuki, Beijing Opera, Ancient Greek theatre, Commedia dell´Arte and Anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner.

During the next few years my goal to find new expressions through the performing arts of the metaphysical dimensions finally drove me to start an independent theatre.

The first step in this direction was the creation of an independent “Cube Theatre” in Munich by Christian Thoma, Liviu Rozorea and I.

The second step was a production of “The Dream, a life” in St.Polten under the name of “Pro Logos Theatre” with Werner Eng and others.

It was not my intention to start a theatre in Romania, but I found here many very good young actors with the same artistic ambitions, so I created the “Theatre Logos” in Buftea and Bucharest through which to be able to work with the Romania actors.

It was on the 12 October 1998 that the “Logos Theatre” was officially recognized as a cultural entity of Romania.
