Welcome to Canon Base

From CanonBase

CanonBase is part of the European Canon of Technical Theatre History project. It is an attempt to map and visualise the technical history in a different way. It contains sources, facts, people, theatres, equipment, methods and collections, and links them to each other and to existing information sources where possible. To do this we are developing a new and rather unique taxonomy. The information is presented in the form of maps, timelines, tree structures and word clouds where possible and useful. The idea behind this is to see new relations and discover new connections.

Feel free to try, experiment, test and give us feedback!
