At Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium we have come into good company with Danish local history.
Since the turn of the year, we at the theater have been in the process of establishing a new department for research and communication. The department is housed on the top floor of the theatre, which was established in 2008 in collaboration with Aarhus University. The theatre's archive is also found here.
The archive (re)presents a valuable collection of historical documents, which have been produced in connection with the many different activities that have shaped the theater since 1966. In the period from 2008-2015, extensive work was started and completed to digitize the collection, and thanks being this work, we now have a large digital archive with archives, sound files, photographs, videos, articles, work diaries and much more that can be dated back to the theatre's first year of existence.
Until now, however, it has not been possible to gain insight into the archive, unless one was physically present at the theatre. We are in the process of changing that.
We have entered into an agreement with the company that operates and develops the registration system Arkibas. Arkibas has been specially developed for use by Danish local and city archives, but is also widely used by art and museum collections, special collections and companies. Via the registration system, it is possible to present your collection to the public at www.arkiv.dk, where you can already go in and see an extract from our collection.
As the registration work progresses, larger and larger parts of the theatre's collection will become available to all interested parties.
