Early work


... in English

Banuta cut her theatrical teeth working in collectives rebelling against traditional authorities such as an author or a director, or even a stage. Together with English luminary Neil Bartlett, she founded THE 1982 THEATRE COMPANY, an international ensemble which created work collectively.  Subsequently, she remained in Canada, where her first success was THIS IS FOR YOU, ANNA , also a collectively created piece.
