Advisory Board of Experts

All of the work done in connection with the SIS Performing Arts is being overseen by an Advisory Board of experts during the funding phase. In addition to evaluating the services developed by the SIS, the Advisory Board’s meetings serve to provide an important source of motivation and ideas for the project. To this end, the Board’s members are all involved in researching and teaching subjects that reflect the entire range of theatre and dance studies. The members of the Advisory Board are:
