Performing the Archive

Professor Nick Kaye was Co-Investigator in 'Performing the Archive: the Future of the Past'. This project was developed in collaboration with Bristol Arnolfini and the Drama department of the University of Bristol.

The project explored the re-animation of the Live Art Archives, the UK's leading archival resource on live and performance art. It developed the interactivity between the archives and communities of practitioners, scholars and audiences. Research explored how academics and artists can use and re-use documents of past events, to inflect and inspire their own performance practice and their critical thinking or writing.

This project ran from 2007-2010, and was funded by Great Western Research.
