”...Scenography and its related disciplines are an increasingly important area of study and gaining considerable academic attention. The field encompasses the visual and spatial aspects of performance in all its manifestations... It is, in other words, a truly cross-disciplinary field of study with important implications for the contemporary world of performance, communication, media, and the like... Someone who can bring praxis to theoretical interrogation should be an ideal candidate for such a field of study. Ms. Moos seems to be such a person.”
