Launched in Spring 2014, 'Performing Ireland' marked the first major exhibition from the Abbey Theatre Digitisation Project at the Hardiman Building. The exhibition captured key material from the Abbey Theatre Digital archive and created an interactive and engaging presence between the archive and the many stories behind the scenes as well as on stage at the Abbey Theatre over the last 110 years. A further feature is exploring links between the Abbey Theatre, the West of Ireland and other key archival collections at the Hardiman Library, such as by Lady Gregory, Thomas Kilroy, Druid Theatre Company, Siobhan McKenna, Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe and MACNAS. The exhibition will continue at the Hardiman Building foyer until 20 September 2014.
