His direction has become a staple of what is a Mon Sans Production, blending wit, drama and allegorical storytelling to bring past plays to life.

When not directing stage Liviu works behind a camera on music videos for upcoming triple J unearthed artists such as NARLA and Beautiful Friend and the acclaimed web series, "Sam and Sammy",
"Directing Monroe has been by far the most complex and intricately deep production I've done, finding the line between truth and fiction has pushed me into a new way of thinking about stage direction and actor interaction. We have a long way to go but granted when I'm done, this will be unlike any Mon Sans Production you have ever seen"
