Publication: British Theatre Companies - From Fringe to Mainstream
Third Volume: 1965-1979

This series of three volumes provides a groundbreaking study of the work of many of the most innovative and important British theatre companies from 1965 to the present. Each volume provides a survey of the political and cultural context, an extensive survey of the variety of theatre companies from the period, and detailed case studies of six of the major companies drawing on the Arts Council Archives to trace the impact of funding on the work produced.
1965–1979, covers the period often accepted as the 'golden age' of British Fringe companies, looking at the birth of companies concerned with touring their work to an ever-expanding circuit of 'alternative' performance venues.

New museum: Scenkonstmuseet
Swedish Museum of Performing Arts opens February 11 2017

Scenkonstmuseet is a premier experience centre devoted to the arts of dance, music and theatre, as well as being one of Europe's leading museums for performance. At Scenkonstmuseet the synthesis of art forms is as important as the mix of people. Social diversity is also to be reflected and encouraged, with the aim that everyone should have the opportunity to participate.
Scenkonstmuseet brings the heritage of dance, music and theatre to life, through touching, enriching and engaging visitors. Its efforts to preserve and make available objects and musical instruments laid the foundations for this. Through the spectacular combination of interactivity and objects, the museum will reach an inter-generational and cross-boundary audience, both in Sweden and internationally. The collections include musical instruments, stage design models, costumes, art objects, theatrical figures and puppets.
