For more than a quarter of a century, EXODOS Ljubljana has been creatively co-creating world performing arts with an effective but demanding formula: combining the new and the established, the daring and the classical. When someone in particular catches our eye, we connect more closely, for a longer period of time, into an effective creative process.
BORUT BUČINEL (1983) is a director, choreographer, dancer, set designer, video designer ... always and everywhere a light designer and photographer, as he creatively focuses on exploring the light, scenography, space and atmosphere that a living artistic composition brings.
When he "paints the light", Borut adds to our project and performances totally new dimensions.

he is also paving the way for freestyle, hip-hop and popping culture in Slovenia.

GREGOR LUŠTEK (1973) creates in the field of theatre and dance as a dancer, choreographer and assistant director, occasionally also as an actor. His dance knowledge encompasses a range of dance techniques, from ballet to contact improvisation, and his basic guideline in expression and recognition is movement based on the anatomical structure of the body. He collaborates with important creators of international contemporary dance art and with local theatre directors. In a creative tandem with choreographer and dancer Rosana Hribar, he is the recipient of numerous national and international awards. As an educator with over 20 years of experience, he has taught in numerous courses and workshops at home and around the world.
Continuously pushing the boundaries and fusing different art forms, multi-award winning KRISTIJAN KRAJNČAN established himself as one of the most prolific and distinctive European artists of his generation. Virtuoso both on drums and violoncello, composer and filmmaker, he has long moved away from fitting into a single labeled drawer. On a constant exploration of new paradigms, his ambition is to weave ancient storytelling with modern creative techniques.
He is featured on 52 albums and has performed in 25 countries across Europe, USA, Asia, Indonesia, Middle-East and Africa. As a composer he scored several short and feature films, while being constantly involved with numerous theatre and dance projects.
