This yearly non-profit publication by the Initiative TheaterMuseum Berlin offers a collection of 27 articles by 22 authors from various countries and fields of expertise – an international theatre community. Six articles are published in English:

  • Help it’s 3D
- about how to deal with our history (by Chris Van Goethem)
  • Ancient wooden Machinery and large scale model in La Monnaie, Brussels (by Laurent Le Bec)
  • The universal language – Archiving Technical Theatre History Facebook group (by Richard Bryant)

  • The Royal Court Theatre of the Kings of Belgium (by Ivo Kersmaekers)

Diverse topics from the world of theatre are carefully studied: ancient theatre machinery, digitization campaigns, and case studies dedicated to a single work. Even professional networking is addressed with a report on the last SIBMAS Conference (Freeze!, 2016, Copenhagen).

If you’re interested in participating in this project, feel free to contact chairman Stefan Gräbener.
