“Performing Across Borders” program is a collaborative initiative between SUNY-Suffolk
and Lucian Blaga University (Sibiu, Romania) Theatre Arts programs, implemented within
the framework of Sibiu International Theatre Festival (www.sibfest.ro).
In 2017 students from both educational institutions prepared performance pieces based
on the strengths of their programs, and merged them together in Sibiu into a joint
performance presented at the Sibiu International Theatre Festival. The two groups
utilized the principles of Collaborative International Online Learning (COIL) to implement
the project during Spring 2017 semester.
During Summer 2018 Theatre Arts students from Suffolk will participate in an applied
learning/internship program designed in collaboration with the Sibiu International
Theatre Festival. Students will be able to hone their skills in the areas of their
interests (light design, sound design, stage management, audience management, logistics
etc.) in preparation for their professional careers in the field of Performing Arts
nationally and internationally. Led by Suffolk faculty, students will learn how to
create meaning out of this experiential learning, how to utilize the new experience
during jobs application processes in the future, how to work effectively in a new
cultural environment and navigate complexities of one of the largest Performing Arts
events in the world. Students will have access to the events at the Sibiu International
Theatre Festival and will go on excursions to nearby historical sites.
Non-credit applied learning/internship (open to students of the Theatre department ONLY). Certificates of Completion will
be awarded to participating students upon meeting the learning objectives of the program.
