„My ideal dancer is a dancer who can deal with different styles, who can express his emotions and passion. It is a dancer who is conscious of his skills, but remains humble, keeps thinking that everytime there is something new to learn and is not afraid of going out from his comfort zone. My dream role was the choosen one in “The Rite of Spring”. I had the chance to study and rehearse the ensamble part in Bejart’s “Rite of Spring” when I was in the school and from that moment I dream to dance that part. But at the moment, I want just to challenge myself with new type of movements and emotions. The last performance I saw that really involved me has been “Until the lions” by Akram Khan. The atmosphere was unique. There was no the usual distance between audience and artists, because the performance was set on a round stage and around it the audience was sitting. The connection between the audience and dancers, musicians and singers was really strong and I think the audience could feel completely involved in the ritualistic, mythological and primordial atmosphere of the performance. In general I am really fascinated by the performances I feel far from what I think I can dance. I met Juronics Tamas in Poland, during last season. He came in the Grand Theater of Lodz to teach us his Carmina Burana. I really enjoyed working on his performance and I was very plaesed when he asked me to come here in Szeged.”
