Eric Colleary, member of the STR and Cline Curator of Theatre and Performing Arts at the
HARRY RANSOM CENTER, University of Texas at Austin, writes for us here:
I wanted to take a moment to share the news that Harry Ransom Center is launching the Theatre 2020 Project, an international effort to document the impact the events of this year have had on the theatre profession – the pandemic, theatre closures, furloughs, online performances, reckoning with longstanding racial injustices in the industry, national politics and protests, and so much more.
We are inviting theatre artists and organizations to register and submit digital files – journals, emails, performance recordings, interviews, zoom meetings, press releases, photographs, written reflections, canceled contracts, revised mission statements, original works, etc. – that might reflect their experiences of this moment.
Please share this news with anyone you think might be interested in participating.
Registration and further information can be found online: https://www.hrc.utexas.edu/theatre2020/
