We’re currently trialling another database from the Routledge Publishing stable, The Routledge Performance Archive, a developing resource produced in partnership with Digital Theatre, providing unique access to an unprecedented range of audio-visual material from past and present practitioners of performance.
This ground-breaking and constantly growing online collection delivers essential resources direct to the classroom, lecture theatre and library, and provides unlimited opportunities to explore themes, make linkages, and discover new approaches, including the following features:
- Watch exclusive videos from practitioners’ own archives
- Listen to unique audio material
- Read first-hand accounts, authoritative definitions and contextualising commentary
- Make connections across many decades of theatre-making
- Construct maps, timelines and genealogies
- Explore themes and ideas about performance practice
- Discover practitioners, methods, styles of work
- Identify influences and approaches
- Compare cultures and eras.
The fully searchable and cross-referenced content will be updated each quarter, with exciting additions coming soon from the Victoria & Albert Museum’s National Video Archive of Performance Recordings, and the British Library’s Experimental Theatre and Live Art Collection.
To begin using the Routledge Performance Archive please go to http://www.routledgeperformancearchive.com – access is via IP address or from off-campus login via the VPN.
The trial will end on December 18th 2015.
We welcome feedback – good or bad – on this trial, please contact Steve Corn email@example.com with your comments.
