AusStage is a pioneering database that holds over quarter of a million records about Australian performance. It is recognised as a significant Australian discovery that transforms our understanding with strong cultural benefits. It is a model for performing arts databases across the world; with the adoption of the AusStage schema, particularly in the UK, new opportunities for research into the global transmission of performance culture have become possible. In the midst of ever faster changes in technology, radically new ways of analysing these increasingly large flows of data need to be developed. This project will enhance the AusStage interface to support all its users, whether the general public, students or researchers, to enable them to create their own experience and use of this data. In doing so this project will increase Australia’s research and innovation capacity to generate new knowledge and result in the development of new technologies. This project will enhance AusStage to ensure that Australia retains its position as an international leader in research infrastructure for the performing arts.
