The project set out to observe, document and analyse a variety of performance styles, in a variety of settings, and to encompass the study of a wide range of audiences – earlier research had focused only on school groups. We planned to conduct research over a long term (three years) to gauge the lasting effectiveness and impact of museum theatre, and along the way to develop new methods of assessing practice. As part of the research, we also aimed to map the extent and style of performance activity across historic sites and museums (internationally), and to facilitate the wider exchange of ideas and practices through the project’s website and an international conference.
