In the last decade she has cooperated on a regular basis with the Anton Podbevšek Theatre, Novo mesto. She maintained contact with classical drama theatre at the Prešeren Theatre Kranj, the Slovene Permanent Theatre, Trieste, Italy, and the SNT Drama Ljubljana. She joined the latter in 2000 and has so far created around forty roles. She is the recipient of two Borštnik Awards. In addition to her work in theatre, she has recently been involved in authoring original stage productions. In 2016, she put on stage Suzanna Andler by Marguerite Duras at the Pocket Theatre, and in 2018 La Musica II by the same author in Cankarjev dom.
