Patrons and Performance

Description: 

The Patrons and Performance website "is designed to include a wide range of data about professional performers on tour in the provinces – their patrons, the performance venues they used and the routes they took across the kingdom". Users are able to search the records of the database or browse by patron, event, venue, or troupe. Additionally, the project presents an interactive map that users can manipulate and search in order to see the traveling performance data rendered in a geographical manner. The Patrons and Performance resource is being constantly updated and expanded: in 2007 they launched a "genealogical component of the database" and now they are "developing modules demonstrating the Web Site’s potential for research and teaching".
