HDKKT is a member of International Association of Theatre Critics (AICT/IACT) and collaborates with The International Federation for Theatre Research (FITR/IFTR).

Association first resides in Ilica 42 and later in Amruševa Street 19, Zagreb. It has about 50 active members and 15 retired and since 2013 dance critics are also admitted.

Association is funded by Ministry of Culture. Shortly after foundation, HDKKT launched Theatrology Library (Teatrologijska biblioteka) with Nikola Batušić as editor in chief and from1979 till 1992 thirty-three titles were published. In year 1994 Theatrology Library merged with Library Prolog (Biblioteka Prolog), former CKD, which was inherited by AGM (Zagreb).
