The artist experiences everything more intensively
Ľubomír Vajdička was born on May 28, 1944 in Trenčín. He grew up in Martin, where the communist regime relocated his father, the evangelical priest Ľudovít Vajdička. Despite the good results, he could not study at grammar school due to the political situation. He graduated in 1962 at the Secondary School of Electrical Engineering in Bratislava. Since childhood, he perceived desire for theatre, which led him to study theatre science. Thanks to his experience with directing, he has been involved as a director at the Slovak National Uprising Theatre in Martin since 1968. Then he appeared as a director at the National Theatre in Prague in 1983 and 1984. Since 1983 he moved from Martin to the Slovak National Theatre in Bratislava. During the Velvet Revolution, he took part in an assembly in the Drama of the Slovak National Theatre, where the actors joined the nationwide strike of theatres. He is currently working in addition to directing as a pedagogue at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava.
