Born in 1992, in Colorado (USA) but considered as Slovak, creative focus of Michal Freriks is oriented on immersive and collaborative theatre where nobody serves to anybody but to art itself. He is mostly interested in dramaturgy and the creational process and he sees an art piece as the mirroring result of the process. Michal came to the performance and performing arts as he was practicing martial arts. He started to be interested more in artistic part of the movement so therefore he partially left martial arts to be fully commited to his interests. He graduated at Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava (Slovakia) in a programme “Dance interpretation and Choreography”. Besides that he studied by himself and got knowledge from his mentors (KJ Holmes, Jaro Viňarský, David Zambrano and many others). Nowadays he works as light designer/technician and producer at Stanica Žilina-Záriečie and Nová Synagóga (theatre and gallery in North of Slovakia) along with choreographing and directing his own art pieces.
Michal Is also a teacher of Contemporary theatre, Contact improvisation, Improvisation and Choreography.
