MAJA SVIBEN

Although primarily educated as a dramaturg and playwright (Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb), since 1999 she has also been working as a drama teacher for Drama Studio Tirena, Zagreb Youth Theatre and International Culture Centre in Zagreb, devising and
directing performances with children and young people (age 6-30).

During that time she also created four theatre-in-education projects for Tirena Theatre and works for Tirena as an international projects coordinator (Erasmus+ projects: Theatre Integrates People, Let’s Net, Future Telling, Let’s Communicate, The Art of Teaching, ACIIS).

She is the recepient of three awards: the Marin Držić award for the play ‘The Source Point’, the SLUK festival award for the best stage adaptation for ‘Grga Čvarak’ (together with director Tamara Kučinović) and the HC Assitej Zvjezdana Ladika award for drama teaching.

She leads drama and theatre workshops for both young people and educators, in Croatia and abroad.

Loving to work across disciplines, her interest as a professional theatre maker is aimed mostly at devised theatre, which she continually practices by working as a writer and/or
dramaturg on various performances with different companies throughout Croatia, where she took part in around 50 different projects.

She is also a member of the editorial board of Drame.hr, a website that publishes contemporary Croatian plays.

Together with director Nora Krstulović, she is the founder of an arts’ collective called SKROZ.
