She helped to found the Bábkové (Puppet) Theatre in Košice but you would come across her work in all the puppet theatres throughout Slovakia. She has also collaborated with theatres in many other countries. She has also worked to a great extent for the Slovak television – studios in Košice and Bratislava. Apart from this, she has also been involved in providing consistent training to amateur puppeteers, has given courses and lectures on stage design. Since 1993 she has been making puppets together with her husband Anton Duša in their own company.
