Guest of Laterna magika
Born far away in Michalovce, eastern Slovakia, Dominik Teleky lives in Brno. He always finds himself in some place and tries to convince himself that the place is right. He is currently studying drama for the final year at the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts, under the tutelage of Nika Brettschneiderová and Igor Dostálek. Since his freshman year, he has been performing at the Municipal Theatre in Brno, appearing in the productions of the musicals Cats, Flashdance, Ghost and Johnny Blue. Furthermore, he has been working for the Feste theatre in Brno, and performed at the music festival in Znojmo and in the opera Platee. Since 2016, he has been cooperating with Husa na provázku theatre.
Dominik has also appeared on TV, including in Jiří Strach’s fairy tale Svatojánský věneček (A Midsummer Wreath), in the Labyrinth series and in several student films. He was a member of Slovakia’s Zemplín Folk Company and the Ondráš Military Ensemble in Brno. For seven years, he practised karate. Or at least he tried. He tries to sing, tap-dance, play the guitar and the piano. He thinks that everyone should be persuing something.
