Peter Gonda received his directing degree at KALD DAMU under the supervision of Jiří Adámek, David Jařáb and Miroslav Krobot. In his theatre works he’s interested in exploring post-dramatic staged forms, often collaborating with non-actors. He lives and programmes in Prague. He’s a member of the audio-visual improvisation body Kolektiv.
