  • Help it’s 3D

  • 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).
