Matija Solce

Musician, puppeteer, actor, workshop organiser and mentor, Matija Solce is currently undertaking his doctoral studies in Alternative Theatre and Puppetry at the Prague theatre academy (DAMU), on the theme of “The musical perspective of puppet theatre”. In his works he closely connects music and theatre, and therefore his concerts often turn into interactive theatre performances, or his puppet shows become musical compositions.
Matija Solce was taught puppetry skills by such teachers as Josef Krofta, Nori Sawa, Bruno Leone, Marek Bečka as well as his own parents (Papilu Theatre). He is also actively involved in the music world as a musician and composer.
