    What can artists learn from theatre scholars when performing historical works on stage today? And what can theatre scholars learn from today’s artists when striving to understanding the works and practices of the past? How are we affected by attending performances in historic theatres? And how, aesthetically, do we experience the reconstruction of productions from the remote past? Through a combination of academic and artistic research, the following essays try to answer these questions, presenting a variety of angles on today’s performances in historic theatres and on today’s attempts to revive theatrical practices of the past.
