“Naum is a theatre artist of genuine stature and recorded accomplishment. He has indefatigable energy, a winning enthusiasm, and the drive to get things done on schedule. He is a devoted teacher, a talented craftsman, and a spiritual force. “ — ROBERT W. CORRIGAN. Founder of The Drama Review, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU
“Naum Panovski was one of the half-dozen most important and interesting directors in Yugoslavia. His work is unique, powerful, magical and poetic, and is right at the leading edge of European and American performance theory. He is not like Tadeusz Kantor or Robert Wilson or Jerzy Grotowski or Peter Brook, but one gets from his work the same shock of originality. He is the complete man of the theater.” — FRED TURNER. Writer, Founding Professor. The University of Texas at Dallas.
