The Memory of Theatre explored the relationship between archives and memories, the way performance events live on through the stories told by audience members and the relationship between heritage buildings, especially theatres, and remembering.

Together the project team gathered an archive of memories from Bristol Old Vic audiences and used groundbreaking technology to conceal the memories within the fabric of the building itself, ready to be unearthed and overlaid by generations of theatre-goers to come, creating a living archaeology of theatrical history from the audience's point of view.

The outcome of the project was a working prototype for a commercially viable, user-friendly and sustainable system for indoor positioning, a transferable solution for delivering location-triggered experiences in heritage buildings.
