Routledge Performance Archive

The Routledge Performance Archive is a developing resource 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. The archive consists of a regularly updated collection of streamed video and audio footage with relevant critical commentary.

Included here are interviews with key figures in theatre history and contemporary practice; masterclasses with specialist actor trainers from around the world; unique footage direct from the legendary practitioners themselves; excerpted and full-length contemporary productions; and documentaries previously unavailable to global audiences. The video material spans more than fifty years of documented work direct from renowned practitioners and specialists, and ranges across the entire spectrum of theatre topics.

The fully searchable and cross-referenced content is updated and added to every three months. It includes unique material from the Victoria & Albert Museum’s National Video Archive of Performance Recordings, and specially commissioned essays by leading experts to accompany each video.
