IVA NERINA SIBILA

is an awarded dance artist, educator, publicist and organiser of cultural events, with a focus on inclusivity and communication with audiences. She earned her three-year contemporary dance education at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, UK and her Master’s degree at the Academy of Arts and Culture in Osijek, Croatia. She is continuously active and working within dance and performance scenes, both in Croatia and internationally, since 1995. Several of her projects work towards the accessibility and visibility of dance, researching the emancipatory potential of dance education, as well as positioning dance in a broader social context.

Concurrent to her artistic work are her critical, reflexive and research texts about dance, firstly as an editor of the magazine Treća (Centre for Women’s Studies Zagreb) and then as an editor of the magazine for dance arts Movements / Kretanja (Croatian Centre of the International Theatre Institute) from 2002 to 2015., including the issues in English. She is the editor of Movement’s / Kretanja’s professional library and TALA Dance Center’s publications. She is a columnist and editorial board member of the online publication Plesnascena.hr. Her texts have been published in various publications – both in Croatia (Treća, Frakcija, Kretanja, Kazalište, Cantus, Vijenac, Zarez, Čitanka) and internationally (European magazine for dance, performance and ballet Tanz, Slovenian magazine Maska, various other collaborative publications). She has worked with the Miroslav Krleža Institute of Lexicography, Croatia, in the field of contemporary dance.

She highlights Trafik and Kik Melone as significant artistic collaborations.

She is the founder and artistic director of the Divert Inclusive Dance Collective, a professional education and performance dance project, notable for its inclusion of dancers with and without disabilities, active since 2012. Divert has performed its productions on various dance and theatre festivals. Divert’s productions, frequent media presence and continuous educational programme exert significant influence on the Croatian cultural and social scene, expanding the limits of artistic expression and promoting the principles of inclusion.
