In 2012, Slovak critics nominated the production A Profitable Position to receive the Dosky Award in the Best Direction of the Season category. After the completion of his master’s programme, Brutovský continued as a doctoral student and, besides other activities, also taught international students. He has been collaborating with several Slovak and Czech theatres (Bratislava, Nitra, Martin, Brno, Kladno, Prague). In 2014, he became the laureate of the Divadelní noviny journal’s Prize for Best Direction of the Season for the production Maryša at the HaTheatre in Brno.
