Martin Boross

Theater and Film director

Founder and artistic director of STEREO AKT, a progressive theater collective established in 2013. 

His work has been presented in over 40 cities in 13 countries in Europe and the United States.

He earned his diploma in 2013 at Budapest’s University of Theatre and Film Arts (SZFE). Since 2011, he has directed 21 original theater productions including on-stage, site-specific, opera, documentary, and participatory works.

His post-dramatic pieces are political and interdisciplinary, often experimenting with the unconventional positioning and participation of the audience. He is interested in using interaction as a dramaturgical technique for critical, creative, reflective audience experiences.

Martin started filmmaking in 2017. Since then, he has directed 2 short films and a documentary, recently completing his debut feature film, Raw Material.

In 2016, he received the Junior Prima Prize, the most prestigious award for Hungarian artists under 30.
