Her practical and professional training had been obtained over the past decade as an actress in "Itim ensemble", led by Israel prize winner Rina Yerushalmi. 

As director and independent theater creator, Yarden had presented her works in the Camery theater, Tzavta theater, Tmuna theater, Jaffa Theatre and more. Her latest work, an Israeli-Swiss co-production had performed in theaters in Switzerland and Berlin.

As teacher Yarden has been teaching and directing in the "Camery theater" and in "Thelma Yellin" high school of the arts.

In her creation Yarden researches the freedom, intuitiveness, and constant rediscovery of each moment within the acting work, inside the borders set in the theatrical aesthetic interpretation of the play.

Written and directed by Yarden Gilboa

The play is about the endless timeless connection between a parent and a child, in an era of modern parenting with boundless options, questions and answers.

A pedagogue conducting an open experiment to study how a father raises his child. She places significant characters around them on stage:  The mother that had decided to leave the house, the grandmother who misses the good old days that thinks she knows best, the Palestinian doctor who wants to fulfill the child's dream, and a musician accompanying the experiment.

Is there a User Guide  for raising a child? Where could the answers to the countless dilemmas of turbulent and conflicting reality can be found?

The play is based on an award-winning novel "A user guide for raising a child" by Eldar Galor.
