Abbey Theatre Visualisation
A project is underway to visualise data from the Abbey Theatre Digital Archive at NUI Galway. The work uses advanced technologies to make this priceless resource accessible to as broad an audience as possible. Researchers in technology and data at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics with technology experts in the NUI Galway Library together with academic leadership from the Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance at NUI Galway are working together to uncover previously unknown knowledge such as connections between actors and directors during the theatre's history. The below visualisation highlights an early output of this partnership where relationships between Abbey Theatre directors, actors, and their gender are investigated.
