Aleksandra Mihajlovska is a professional actress currently working in the National Theater Kumanovo, Macedonia. Besides acting, she works in the field of applied theater and for the last two years she is a coordinator of the Youth Center Multi Kulti as part of the Center for Intercultural Dialogue, Kumanovo.
As an actress chosen to work in a state theater, she is grateful for the opportunity to experience playing in various productions on regular basis, which is extremely important for her professional development. But on the other side, she is present on the independent scene as well, and she strongly supports the development of the independent scene in the country, because that is the place for free experiments in terms of expression, use of space and post-dramatic theater concepts.
She believes in the power of theater outside the institutionalized theater and the impact it can have for social changes. As a youth worker and trainer she works internationally and locally in order to promote the use of theater tools in various social contexts. Multi Kulti, the youth center she works in, was created in 2010 in Kumanovo with a main aim to support the intercultural dialogue and acceptance in the ethnically segregated city. In the center different art and social workshops for kids and students are organized on regular basis with the use of non-formal education methods.
Besides acting and working in the youth center, she is currently ending her MA ( theater arts ) studies and works on her theses that has to do with the importance and recognition of applied theater methods in the formal education of actors in the country.
