Delak was one of the first Slovenian avant-garde figures and theater revolutionaries. He founded the New Stage (Slovene: Novi oder) movement in Ljubljana and the international avant-garde journal Tank. He was involved in almost all Slovene and Yugoslav theaters and also served twice as the director of the Croatian National Theater. He was also involved in work at other Croatian theaters. He was also engaged for a short time at the Ljubljana National Drama Theater and the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet Theater. In 1932, Delak directed the second Slovene full-length film, Triglavske strmine (The Slopes of Mount Triglav, 1932), which was his only film.
