Over the years he spent as a member of the dance department at Zagreb Youth Theatre he was cast roles in multiple dance performances and shows. Trained in voice and violin in music school Glazbena škola Vatroslava Lisinskog.

After graduating from high school (age 17) was accepted to study in SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance) - Salzburg, Austria. But finally - graduated from P.A.R.T.S. (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) on June 24, 2012.

Since early 2010 he has been working on Behind the Sun series, which is a collection of pieces, which are composed around the concept of practice being the core of an artistic body of work; practice is the main material but also that which articulates the relationship between the artist and the (actual) content of his or hers work. Behind the Sun counts two made performances and three that are in process of production.

Using the practice as his base, Pavle enters collaborative processes and through engagement is trying to understand various relationships between contexts, priorities, technique, interest, ego, success and body, movement, dance.

Since 2012 Pavle is a published author of essays and texts on dance and culture at large.
