Since 2001 the head of the Centre is Željka Turčinović. Following several years of activities, the Centre has grown from a small organisation of theatre enthusiasts into a programmer of theatre projects (International Drama Colony, Motovun – From Text to Performance, Croatian Showcase, Foreign Drama and Theatre Days) and promoter of Croatian theatre and drama on the international level. As part of the promotion of theatre and dance, the Centre is the publisher of a series of publications in English (Croatian Theatre, Theatres in Croatia, Shortcut to Croatian Dance).
