Hi Everyone!

 

My name is Lucie Neperena, I have been working with Azyzah Theatre since the beginning by producing props, costumes, posters, books and general artistic consultations.

I perform as a clown at events with the Azyzah team and have created the adventures of Kiki & Mr.Suits by giving my design expertise to the final product.

I love languages and have been studying them my whole life. I can communicate with you in English, French, Italien, Czech, Slovak and a little German.

 

I have extensive experience in graphic design, photography, producing and have worked over 15 years as an artistic director and producer of auctions at Arcimboldo Auction house and other galleries in Prague and New York.

My connection with children lies in performing as a clown at events and hospitals for the past 20 years.

My passion for the arts and travelling brings creativity and vision into all I do and I look forward to making Azyzah a fun learning experience for all !
