Zavod Bufeto was the first professional association in Slovenia to introduce and develop the theatre of clown - a synthesis of clowning, circus skills and acting. Merging the circus traditions on one hand and dramaturgical principles on the other hand, they question the boundaries of classical theatre as well as those of a typical circus show. They produce their own pieces and do collaborations with many renowned artists from Slovenia and abroad. Zavod Bufeto has thus far left its mark as a team of people which continues to produce fresh and an original stage work. Zavod Bufeto's founders and core members are Nataša and Ravil Sultanov. They also organise the International festival of new circus and contemporary clown Klovnbuf and run their own educational programme, offering courses and symposiums led by internationally renowned teachers.
