After receiving a degree from the University of Colorado with a focus in applied theater through the Interactive Theatre Project (a theater ensemble utilizing Theatre of the Oppressed techniques to address social justice issues on campus), Maya became an Assistant Director for the Interactive Theatre Project where she began to learn the art form of facilitation. She then created the ACTivism Theatre Ensemble, a company of high school and college students performing an educational outreach/prevention play for the Sexual Assault Victim Advocacy Center throughout Colorado. Maya created and toured throughout the country with the one woman show, “For Sale,” addressing sex trafficking in America. She then worked with survivors of sex trafficking and social workers on processing their trauma through the power of theater. She founded Restorative Theater in 2014 at the Dillon Youth Detention Center. She joined Mirror Image Arts (MIA) in 2015 and is now the Executive Director of Programs. Mirror Image Arts’ mission is to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline with a passion and purpose to imagine and create collective liberation for all.
