The Theatre Museum: A Place for Vanished Experience
Abstract:Situated in the historic Court Theatre of Christiansborg Palace, Copenhagen’s Theatre Museum draws on its unusual location to tell the story of Danish theatre. However, the very relevance of site to subject has raised provocative questions as to what a theatre museum is and how it should face the future. The author has been director of the Theatre Museum since 1982 and vice-president of the International Society of Libraries and Museums of Performing Arts (SIBMAS) since 1994.
