Katt Lissard is on the faculty of the Individualized Masters Program at Goddard College, Vermont, USA, and is the artistic director of The Winter/Summer Institute (www.maketheatre.org), a biennial multi-country HIV/AIDS theatre project that takes place in Lesotho, southern Africa. Katt spent most of 2005 on a Fulbright at the National University of Lesotho, teaching, researching the theatrical response to HIV, and producing and directing shows. In 2006, as a direct outgrowth of that work, The Winter/Summer Institute (WSI) was launched by eight colleagues from the US, UK, South Africa, and Lesotho. WSI brings student performers and faculty facilitators from three continents together with rural villagers in Lesotho to create collaborative theatre in response to the HIV pandemic in the sub-Saharan. WSI’s work is ongoing. Katt’s MAP project in Lesotho, Split the Village, began through a second Fulbright at the National University from March - November 2012; and will continue there this March - April of 2013, and in New York in May at the IRT Theater.
