About me

I'm trained in acting, physical theatre and dance. I was also trying to develop interdyscyplinary knowledge base, to be able to draw from different dyscyplines of art and science while doing my work.
My work is based on choreographic skills combined with 'straight' drama practice.

I'm interested mainly in directing, but any production role that I would be suitable to do interests me.

Additional Skills

acting, dance, physical theatre, stage combat, teaching,

    Chris Hislop · Director

    Jakub worked for me as an assistant director on my recent production of The Shakespeare Conspiracy, and was a delight to work with - an excellent assistant director I couldn't possibly recommend more. As well as being personable and friendly, Kuba is a very talented director in his own right, a great sounding board as well as perfectly able to work independently as well as in tandem - the whole package! I couldn't recommend Kuba more whole-heartedly.
