Theatrically Re-imagining Collections: a seminar day

Join us for an inspirational and thought provoking day as we disrupt and unpick current practice around performance in museums and ask are museums the new theatres?

Date: 28/05/2024 – 28/05/2024


UCL Museums and Impropera present the Theatrically Re-imagining Collections
seminar day. Whether its dance, opera or drama, museums all across the
country have been working with theatre companies to imaginatively
interpret their collections to reach out to audiences.

Are you a museum professional interested in
understanding more about how to work with performance companies to
engage audiences? Or a performer who would you like to create work
inspired by amazing spaces and collections?

Join UCL Museums as we, with the help of Impropera,
theatrically re-imagine the ‘conference’ and hear from the experiences
of museums and performance companies who have successfully collaborated
to produce innovative work.
