New Resource - Routledge Perfomance Archive (RPA)

The Library has purchased the Routledge Performance Archive (RPA)

The Routledge Performance Archive provides access to audio-visual material from past and present practitioners of performance. Included 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.

You can access it from the library databases list via the subject filters of theatre and film/video
