About

‘Performing the Archive’ will bring together leading academics, practitioners and others who work with or engage with the documented record and history of theatre and performance. In recent years teaching and research of performance as well as practical development of theatre and performance has been influenced by advances in digital technologies, allowing for unprecedented access, study and manipulation to performance histories.

This conference capitalizes on NUI Galway’s unparalleled strength in Irish theatre and literary archives, taking advantage of holdings including the Abbey Theatre, the Druid Theatre, Lyric Theatre Belfast, Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe, Thomas Kilroy, Siobhan McKenna and the Galway Arts Festival, among others, to facilitate a national and international conversation about the place of archives in not only theatre and performance research and teaching, but arts practice and perception of theatre history more broadly.
