Maya's theatre journey started with street theatre in the late 1970's with Theatre Union, a group she co-founded. After making stage performances for several years, she returned to this form, but this time, solo. Since 2012, she has been responding to events and controversial issues that have engaged women and other sections of society who are taken up with the struggle for rights.

Over time, Maya has made different performances to protest the killings of Muslims over cow slaughter. These have been performed in different kinds of spaces – on the street and in auditoria. “In the name of my cow, you drive a knife right through me?”
