Peter is a theatre director and educator originally from Ljubljana, Slovenia. He often experiments with form and genre, playing with immersive, participatory, and site-specific aspects of his productions, and he is most interested in exploring universal human issues on stage through underlying mythological and archetypal structures. 

His work has taken him around the world: in Ecuador, he directed the devised show Miracles are Soft in the Jungle, which was inspired by the team's co-creative work with the Indigenous Shuar community; in Hong Kong, the production of The Enchantment of the Beauty and the Beast won the Trinity College Distinction award; in Amsterdam, the socially-engaged I Am Not Antigone premiered before going on a tour in Serbia.

His U.S. credits include The Blind (Schapiro Theater), The Weird Tree (Lerner Studio), Scrapland (The Wintercheck Factory), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Fordham), The Mystery of Edwin Drood (Clark), and Gilgamesh: A Musical Epic (The Connelly Theater).

Peter studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London (MA Text and Performance) and at Columbia University in New York City (MFA Theatre Directing), under the mentorship of Anne Bogart and Brian Kulick. At Columbia, he was the recipient of the Dean's and Harriman's fellowships. He is currently pursuing his PhD at the University of Leeds in the U.K., exploring performative responses to climate change and generating transformative change through dialogue and inter-cultural co-creation.
