Denitza Dimitrova has a B.A.S. degree in Communication from the University of Southern Maine (USA) and a Master’s in Human Resource Management from the Plovdiv University (Bulgaria). Prior to joining the management team of the theatre she has worked in the field of Administration, PR and Marketing at leading Bulgarian companies in the private sector.

Two of the main focuses of her high school and undergraduate studies were Linguistics and Creative Writing, which combined with her passion for theatre awakened a new professional interest – translation of plays from English. Staged translations: Nest of Angels by Alan Litsey, Eric Bogosian’s Wake Up and Smell the Coffee, 2003 Pulitzer Prize winner Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz, Cock by Mike Bartlett, The Picture of Dorian Gray adapted for stage by Merlin Holland and John O’Connor, The Fastest Clock in the Universe by Philip Ridley. Another one of her translations, Debris by Dennis Kelly, was selected for an acting workshop, part of the international EU funded project Corps de Textes.
