zivot4One of the worlds surely not completely discovered for Josipa was the theatre. In 1994 she got to know it better, through a very successful guest appearance at the theatre Koreodrama in Slovenia in the play Weeping Mary of Syracuse (Solzna Marija Sirakuška) which was written and staged by Damir Zlatar Frey. In 1997, for the second time in the same theatre, she performed in the play Schizophrenia by the same author, with whom she also appeared at the European Theatre Festival. A decade later, in August 2007, she once again had the opportunity to rub shoulders with the theatrical world by taking part in the play Drunken night 1918 (Pijana noć 1918) in the Ulysses theatre in Brijuni. This was a dramatisation of Krleža’s novel Drunken November night 1918 (Pijana novembarska noć 1918), adapted by Tena and Ivo Štivičić, and directed by Lenka Udovički.

In 1997, Josipa Lisac ‒ Anthology (Josipa Lisac ‒ Antologija) was released on 8 CDs/MCs, with material and albums from 1967 to 1997, one of the first ventures of its kind in Croatian music. Ten years later in 2007, the next sample from Josipa’s career, highlighting the hits, was released by Croatia Records in the form of a platinum collection. Thus, The Platinum Collection came out in a double CD edition featuring 31 original recordings.

Some of the songs from the album were previously performed at festivals, like Melodije hrvatskog Jadrana (Melodies of the Croatian Adriatic), and afterwards at the Split and Zadar festivals.

Josipa’s studio album from 2009, I live my way (Živim po svome), was arranged and produced by Elvis Stanić. The title track of the album was adapted by Slovenian musician Jani Hace (Siddharta), while the songwriters, apart from Stanić, were Meri Cetinić, Srđan Sekulović-Skansi i Gojko Tomljanović. The album Živim po svome won the Porin award in 2010 for best pop album of the year. It also won in the category of best recording, while Josipa, for the fourth time, won the Porin for best female vocal performance.
